backstory: Nina Chanel Abney

Most of the exhibitions we show at the Neuberger are projects that we self-originate, meaning our curators think them up and make them happen.  

On occasion, however, we work with colleagues at other museums to “borrow” exhibitions that they’ve originated.  Right now we are in the middle of installing our next partnership project, entitled Nina Chanel Abney: Royal Flush, which we took from the Nasher Museum down at Duke University in North Carolina.  The Nasher is a great museum and we are really excited to be able to share Nina’s show with our audiences.  The exhibition opens Wednesday February 27, so please stop by that evening for our spring exhibitions reception.  Also, Nina will be here to talk about her work on April 17 (we’ll remind you about that later).  I haven’t met Nina yet.  Looking forward to it and to hearing her talk about her work.
