This ongoing series of Thursday-night events looks deeply at what makes museums tick and what they offer the culture at large.
The second event of the series asks: “What does it take to make an exhibition at Carnegie Museum of Art?” Using the current exhibition Ordinary Madness and upcoming show Paul Thek: Diver, A Retrospective as case studies, staff members provide an insider’s glimpse of how museums really work, from generating exhibition ideas to installing the art and involving the visitors in the interpretive experience. Hear about the issues museum people struggle with daily as we meet our responsibilities to artists, audiences, and the culture at large, and bring the burning questions your inquiring mind wants to ask.
