DESCRIPTION

Tandem Pursuits is inspired by Bashford Dean, a resident of Wave Hill House from 1909 until his death in 1928 at the age of 61. At the start of his residence here, Dean was Curator of Arms and Armor at the Metropolitan Museum of Art; and Curator of Fish at the American Museum of Natural History. The intersection of his interest in both fish and armor provides the opportunity to bring together a remarkable collection of contemporary art that explores concepts of adaptation, pattern, and protection.
