Welcome to Platemark, a podcast about art, ideas, prints, and printmaking

Platemark s3e20 the print ecosystem: Kimberli Gant, curator, Brooklyn Museum

In Platemark s3e20, host Ann Shafer talks with Kimberli Gant, curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Brooklyn Museum. While Kimberli’s specialty isn’t in prints per se, she is one of those unusual non-print curators who likes and appreciates prints and incorporates them into her projects.

Her work on Jacob Lawrence and his time in Nigeria led to the exhibition, Black Orpheus: Jacob Lawrence and the Mbari Club, currently on view at the New Orleans Museum of Art, and unlocks an area of Lawrence’s oeuvre that has been overlooked. If you missed the show, Kimberli's beautiful catalogue is worth acquiring.
