Today is the big opening for our exhibition in Daejeon, Korea, Conversations: Impressionist and Modern Master Works from The Phillips Collection. Two years in the making, this show furthers our relationship with notable museums in Asia and the citizens of those countries who have seen our works in loan and traveling exhibitions in the past.
On Tuesday October 8, 2013, Director of the Center for the Study of Modern Art and Phillips Curator at Large Klaus Ottmann gave a special bi-local lecture to Georgetown University’s Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service students in Washington, DC and Doha, Qatar at Georgetown University’s Polycom RealPresence Experience (RPX) classroom. The RPX classroom allows the students to meet face-to-face in real time for discussion and interaction despite being separated by continents and time zones.
Curator for Research Sue Frank works with Curatorial Intern Joseph Shaikewitz sort through maquettes for the approximately 160 works in the Made in the U.S.A. exhibition coming to the museum in the fall.
