In episode 103, Ann and Ben take a deep dive into value, beginning with market value. How is it established, who decides what the value of a work should be, how value is arrived at, and how it’s a totally subjective idea.
In episode 102, Ann is in the hot seat as Ben asks her about her beginnings as a curator from an internship at the Whitney Museum of American Art during college, to graduate school at Williams College, to the prints and drawings department at the National Gallery of Art, and to the prints, drawings, and photographs department at the Baltimore Museum of Art (BMA). Ann talks about how it happened, highlights along the way, and how much it meant to her. Interwoven is a love letter to the many students that passed through the BMA’s studyroom, the exhibitions that were most meaningful, and the objects she acquired for the BMA’s collection.
