AHNCA | Reinstalling 19th-Century American Art in US Museums, Pt. 2: Innovation/Interpretation

Please join the AHNCA on Tuesday, February 27 at 7PM ET for the Virtual Salon Reinstalling Nineteenth-Century American Art in US Museums, part 2: Innovation/Interpretation.
This event is organized by Nineteenth-Century Art Worldwide and is part of a series of online events cosponsored by the Association of Historians of Nineteenth-Century Art (AHNCA) and the Dahesh Museum of Art. Join us for a discussion among four curators who are in the process of reinstalling the American galleries at their museums. Building on part 1 of this Virtual Salon series, Art/History, held in November 2023, part 2: Innovation/Interpretation will move from theory to practice. Panelists will discuss such issues as (1) balancing new voices with the curatorial voice; (2) strategies for providing multiple interpretive options in the galleries; (3) prototyping new types of installations; and (4) gathering feedback from visitors, community groups, and education and interpretation staff. The panel will be moderated by Isabel L. Taube, Co-Managing Editor, and Kimberly Orcutt, Executive Editor, Nineteenth-Century Art Worldwide. Speakers include Virginia M. G. Anderson, Leo Mazow, Jeremiah William McCarthy, and Sarah Kelly Oehler
