Culture Fix: Lacy Simkowitz on The Box Project: Uncommon Threads

October 14, 2016 | 12:00PM - 12:00PM

Lacy Simkowitz, curatorial assistant at the Cotsen Collection, worked closely with artists featured in The Box Project, helping to organize their commissioned artworks into an exhibition and catalog. From mining the archives to decisions about the exhibition checklist, Simkowitz played a key role in the development of the traveling exhibition. In this gallery talk, she discusses case studies by James Bassler, Ai Kijima, and Cynthia Schira as she shares behind-the-scenes stories about the exhibition planning process.
