TAM's exhibition, What's New, Pussycat? closed March 6, 2011. TAM's next exhibition, Gateway Japan, is as of this writing, scheduled to open March 26, 2011. (Hopes and thoughts.)
During The Time Between Shows (see this link for more information, please
http://writer.torranceartmuseum.com/2011/03/time-between-shows-part-ii.html), this blog checked in with TAM's curator and director Max Presneill.
We'll be presenting one question and one answer each day during an eleven-period. This is day seven. Scroll down the blog to see past related posts.
Here's today's question and answer --
Jeremy Rosenberg: What's the oddest story or anecdote involving WNP that I wouldn't already know?
Max Presneill: The help I got from some of the artists in the show regarding getting ahold of some of the other artworks, not made by themselves, for the show. They were incredibly helpful and really went out of their way to help us acquire some of the works for WNP. Very generous of them and a side to artists often ignored -- people who don’t know any artists may think them as self-involved and thus selfish, or some other stereotype -- which is mostly untrue and that is odd.
Coming tomorrow: Did you achieve your intention in staging WNP?
