LECTURE BY DR. MARTHA LUCY,
DEPUTY DIRECTOR FOR EDUCATION & PUBLIC PROGRAMS AND CURATOR OF THE BARNES FOUNDATION.
“Installation in Progress”
Have you ever wondered what goes into organizing a museum exhibition? Go behind the scenes with Barnes Foundation curator Dr. Martha Lucy.
Focusing on several recent Barnes projects, this talk will elaborate the process of mounting a major show—from developing the initial concept to final design and installation, and all the challenges along the way.
An accomplished art historian and curator, Dr. Lucy was previously assistant professor of art history at Philadelphia’s Drexel University, and as associate curator of the Barnes Foundation. Her specialty lies in late-19th-century/early-20th-century French art and visual culture.
A Champagne reception will follow the lecture.
