The backstory blog by Neuberger Museum of Art Director Tracy Fitzpatrick
Take a look at what happens behind the scenes at the Museum and what informs and inspires the team responsible for bringing its exhibitions and programs to life.
What do you get when you bring together expertise and great space? You get a great collaboration. This Friday is the first of a two-part collaboration among the Neuberger, The Performing Arts Center, and the Purchase College School of Film and Media Studies to present a rare screening of film works by Yoko Ono and others in the Fluxus art movement.
Hoping those of you taking time to be with just yourself or family and friends over the next few days enjoy peaceful, restful and joyful time.
Last week, students from the Purchase College Conservatory of Dance performed a wonderful improvisation event in the gallery with our Nicolás De Jesús exhibition.
If you’ve seen our YOKO ONO: Mend Piece (Andrea Rosen Gallery, New York City version) exhibition, I think you’ll like this conversation with Midori Yoshimoto, an expert on Japanese women artists, and Diana Puglisi, our curator of education for youth and adult programs. Listen in as Yoshimoto describes her work with Yoko Ono and the evolution of Mend Piece since its debut in 1966.
