Art Thursday | Tales from the Vault: Access vs. Preservation

Friday, July 13, 2018, 1:00 AM

Join CAM for a lively discussion amongst curators, collection management teams and gallery directors to discover the secrets of their contemporary art collections. Why are certain artworks kept locked in collection vaults while others are regularly seen? Explore some of these “behind the scenes” issues with our colleagues; Jocelyn Boigenzahn (Scarfone Gallery, University of Tampa), Ashley Burke (Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg), Kristin Dufrain (USF Graphicstudio), Sarah Howard (USFCAM), Katherine Pill (Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg), and Joanna Robotham (Tampa Museum of Art). The discussion will be moderated by Shannon Annis (USFCAM). Restricted will display seldom seen but important works from the permanent collection of the USF Contemporary Art Museum, including paintings, prints, video, sculptures, installations, and archival material by leading artists such as Claes Oldenburg, John Cage, Lynda Benglis, Mernet Larsen, Burt Barr, and many others. All the works are restricted in the environments and contexts in which they can be displayed and this exhibition offers not only the opportunity to view these “hidden gems,” but a discussion of their care and the competing pressures of best museum practices. Please contact CAM for more information or directions at (813) 974-4133 or email caminfo@admin.usf.edu.
