Behind the Scenes in Registration: Around the World for CAM

Registration , behind the scenes , exhibitions , travel

I am the Associate Registrar of Exhibitions at the Cincinnati Art Museum, and I have worked for the museum for 9 years.  Within the scope of my responsibilities, I oversee the majority of temporary exhibitions each year, either in-house or traveling.   In that, I negotiate loan agreements, exhibition contracts, and insurance; as well as coordinate crating and shipping arrangements, and work very closely with the Installation department to install and deinstall each show.  But the fun part is when I get the chance to act as a courier for domestic and international loans, and that allows me to visit wonderful places all over the world like France, Japan, Norway and Spain.

Here’s a look at the life of a registrar…

 

Courier Trip to Paris, France visiting the Eiffel Tower.

Packing Shipping Crates.

 

The license to operate a Tape Gun.

 

Courier Trip with a local Norwegian traveling companion

 

Or most of the time working at my desk pushing paperwork and making lots and lots of files.
