Virtual | ‘Making a Great Exhibition’ – A New Children’s Book by Doro Globus, with Genevieve Martin
January 13 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
9am PT / 10am MT / 11am CT / 12pm ET
Please join Doro Globus, Managing Director of David Zwirner Books, and Genevieve Martin, Director of External Affairs and Advancement at the Children’s Museum of the Arts, for a discussion on the motivation behind Globus’ newly published children’s book, Making a Great Exhibition. Globus will also talk about the publishing program at David Zwirner. We will hear more about how the program works and why it is a crucial part of the gallery’s offerings.
In Making a Great Exhibition, Globus identified a need to demystify the museum space and offer insight into how it works. Thinking beyond the finished product–the exhibition or the artwork–Globus steps back to show how many people and skills are involved along the way. She features curators, art handlers, educators, photographers, shippers, museum visitors, and more as she describes the process. Both author and illustrator, Rose Blake, were raised in the art world, spending their time in studios, doing homework in museum offices, and going to special openings. They have teamed up to share their experiences and love for this world of creative people.
