John Elderfield, a Consultant at Gagosian Gallery, is Chief Curator Emeritus of Painting and Sculpture at The Museum of Modern Art, where he directed numerous celebrated exhibitions, among them Kurt Schwitters, Henri Matisse: A Retrospective, and De Kooning: A Retrospective, and the more specialized Manet and the Execution of Maximilian and Matisse: Radical Invention, 1913–1917. He is the recipient of Harkness and John Simon Guggenheim Fellowships; of the first Mitchell Prize for an outstanding publication on twentieth-century art; and has been a visiting scholar at the Getty Research Institute and the American Academy in Rome. In 2005, Time magazine named him one of the 100 Most Influential People of the Year; and in 2006 was awarded an honorary D. Litt. from The University of Leeds, and was made Officier dans l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French Government.

Peter Galassi retired from The Museum of Modern Art in 2011 after thirty years at the museum, including twenty as Chief Curator of Photography. He has devoted exhibitions and publications to the work of Henri Cartier-Bresson, Roy DeCarava, Philip-Lorca diCorcia, Walker Evans, Lee Friedlander, Andreas Gursky, Alexander Rodchenko, Cindy Sherman, and Jeff Wall, among others. He is the recipient of the ICP Infinity Award for excellence in writing, the Eric Mitchell Prize, and a Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship in 2012, to support a study about the role of the vernacular in photographic modernism. Other recent projects include Robert Frank in America, an exhibition that opened in September 2014 at the Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University.
