"Water: Making Pictures and Documenting Change"

Hailed as "America's Best Curator" by Time magazine, Tucker founded the photography department in 1976 at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston for which she acquired over 30,000 photographs made on seven continents. Having curated more than 40 exhibitions, most with catalogues, she has also written over 130 articles for magazines and other books. Some of the catalogues of which she was a principle author won awards and contributed new knowledge to photography's history. She has lectured in North and South America, Europe, Africa and Asia. She retired as Curator Emerita from the MFAH in 2015. Most recently, Tucker conducted the interview with Brad Temkin for his book "The State of Water".
