Behind the Scenes: Preparators and their Art
April 4 – May 24
Presented by: American University Museum at the Katzen Arts Center
Preparators play crucial roles in creating the conditions under which art is experienced. They pack, transport, and unpack it as it moves to and from the artist’s studio, gallery, museum, or private collection. They help design exhibition spaces, install and light the artworks therein, and place labels and text panels to help contextualize art to enable its productive interpretation by an audience. It is no secret the best preparators are artists themselves, and the American University Museum and its Alper Initiative for Washington Art have been fortunate to work with the gifted artists whose work is exhibited in Behind the Scenes: Preparators and their Art.
