Lecture: Setting up an Exhibition
October 13, 2020 7:45 PM - 8:45 PM at Zoom
Speaker: Sarah Keeling
This talk will highlight the considerable work involved in mounting an exhibition from concept to completion. This includes behind the scenes planning, selection of items, researching exhibits, and requesting loans. Consideration will have been given to the care of objects, the transportation and security of objects as well as how best to display and represent the context of the items in order to enhance the public understanding.
Sarah was born in St Albans and her love for her job as Curator at St Albans Museum + Gallery was inspired by the wealth of local history fed by visits to museums as a child. She has since worked in museums around the county. When she joined the local team they were in the process of planning the move to the new building.
