Inside the Exhibition: Paris 1900

This episode idea was suggested to us by Museum member, Clint Kamstra. Clint wanted to know more about what it takes to curate an exhibition, specifically “Paris 1900: City of Entertainment”. Because this exhibition did not originate at the Portland Art Museum, it gives us an opportunity to detail the decisions made in creating an exhibition calendar, with a focus on traveling exhibitions, such as “Paris 1900”.

Paris 1900: City of Entertainment” opens on June 8, and runs through September 8, 2019

Featured in this episode:
Brian Ferriso, Marilyn H. and Dr. Robert B. Pamplin, Jr. Director and Chief Curator
Mary Weaver Chapin, Curator of Prints and Drawings
Jon Richardson, Podcast Producer
