Registrar and Exhibitions Coordinator, Institute of Contemporary Art.
As a registrar, he handles loan agreements, shipping, insurance and condition reports for works of art that will be on exhibit at ICA. Hes also the primary person in charge of caring for works while theyre in the museums possession. As exhibitions coordinator he works with the curators and preparators to make the artistic concept of each exhibition a reality.
An artist a couple of years of ago wanted to suspend a disassembled VW Bug from the ceiling. We ended up buying the car in Mexico City. Then we had to devise a method for hanging it from the ceiling.
Do we have the manpower, the time, the money? How far can we push this without doing significant damage to the space?
