On June 13, 2015, the ROM opened its major exhibition Pompeii – In The Shadow of the Volcano to the public. Paul Denis, a member of the curatorial team will present a lecture on the making of this exhibition. Starting at the beginning of the process in 2012, he will discuss developing the basic story line and themes while at the same time creating a list of objects that would be borrowed from the National Museum of Archaeology in Naples and the Depository at Pompeii. Among the many departments the curators worked with, Paul will focus on Exhibit Design, the Preparators and Conservation. Most of “The Making of an Exhibition” is presented chronologically in the context of the construction of the exhibition and the installation of the graphics, labels and objects.
This free lecture kicks off our 2015/16 season.
Date: Tuesday, September 22, 2015 at 6:00 p.m.
