Behind the Scenes: New Exhibitions

February was a very busy month for us in Curatorial. We opened two new temporary exhibitions, Sacred Scenes: Icons of the Orthodox Church, and Ordinary Lives with photography by Rania Matar. We documented the installation process for each exhibit with additional photos on flickr here and here.

With Sacred Scenes we actually had the artist and his team available to install some of his works on acrylic panels.

The gallery started out with a lot of crates…

Ordinary Lives had fewer crates and pieces to assemble…

All the photos fit in just two of these crates

We hope you will see both exhibitions on your next visit to the AANM.
