Lecture with Leah Taylor and Christine May
Thursday, March 17 | 6 to 7 pm
Join curators Leah Taylor and Christine May for a fascinating conversation about the behind-the-scenes work that goes into staging an art exhibition.
Have you ever wondered how an exhibition goes from concept to installation? How does the artwork get here? How is artwork layout decided?

Christine May is curator at the Kelowna Art Gallery. She helped to present A Story in Three Parts: Ashevak, Pootoogook, Isuma here at the Kelowna Art Gallery, which was curated by William Huffman, West Baffin Eskimo Cooperative.
