Annie Bourneuf Wins 2016 Robert Motherwell Book Award

SAIC is internationally renowned for its innovations in art practices and research, and Annie Bourneuf from the Department of Art History, Theory, and Criticism is the latest faculty member to earn national recognition for her contributions. The Dedalus Foundation, a major arts organization that "fosters public understanding of modern art and modernism through its programs in arts education, research and publications, archives and conservation, and exhibitions," recently awarded Bourneuf's Paul Klee: The Visible and the Legible the 2016 Robert Motherwell Book Award, calling her project "the first full account of the interplay between the visible and the legible in Klee’s works from the 1910s and 1920s."

Members of the jury included Carol Armstrong of Yale University, James Leggio of the Brooklyn Museum of Art, and Rebecca Rabinow of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
