When one exhibition closes, another always opens.
While I’m bummed that Frank (are we allowed to be on a first-name basis after my exhibition Express Talks and school tours?) is leaving the Museum after May 15, I am so excited for the epic series of upcoming exhibitions included in the Summer of CHINA!
You might have heard about this endeavor: the Museum will have no less than five–five!–exhibitions that feature thousands of years of Chinese art, all in one place here at the Museum. (You can read all about them in the press release.) Right now, as I’m studying The Emperor’s Private Paradise: Treasures from the Forbidden City exhibition catalog, I thought I’d give you all a sneak peek as to some of the things that happen around here before an exhibition opens to the public.
Warning: This post might exhaust you! We get pretty busy…
