Peter Trippi is editor-in-chief of Fine Art Connoisseur, the magazine that serves collectors of historical and contemporary representational art. He is also president of Projects in 19th-Century Art, a firm he established to pursue research, writing, and curating opportunities. Previously he served as director of the Dahesh Museum of Art (New York) and vice director for development at the Brooklyn Museum. In 2016 Trippi co-curated an exhibition about the Dutch-born, London-based painter Lawrence Alma-Tadema, who lived from 1836 to 1912. That project opened at the Fries Museum in Leeuwarden, Holland, then traveled to Vienna’s Belvedere Museum and London’s Leighton House Museum. In 2008-10, Trippi co-curated the international touring exhibition J.W. Waterhouse: The Modern Pre-Raphaelite.
Peter also advised the curators of the exhibition ‘The American Dream’, that is currently being shown at both the Drents Museum (Assen, Netherlands) and the Kunsthalle Emden (Germany). On the last day of TRAC2018, a guided bus tour will be organised for all participants so that they can see this two-part exhibition.
