Let’s pay our favorite museums a virtual visit. Join the Atlas Obscura team for an exploration of hidden gallery spaces, tours of the secret stories behind the art, and conversations with curators about their collections and how they’re coping with this uncertain time.
Tonight we’ll be discussing the Brooklyn Museum. And our guest expert will be Carmen Hermo, Associate Curator of the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art.
Carmen Hermo joined the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art’s curatorial team as Assistant Curator in June 2016 and was appointed Associate Curator in 2018. Most recently she curated Half the Picture: A Feminist Look at the Collection (2018–19), and Something to Say: Brooklyn Hi-Art! Machine, Deborah Kass, Kameelah Janan Rasheed, and Hank Willis Thomas (2018–19), and formed part of the curatorial collective for Nobody Promised You Tomorrow: Art 50 Years After Stonewall (2019).
