WHILE AT WAM:
I conducted artist and collections research for accessions, spearheaded a gallery evaluation initiative of the museum’s permanent collection, and acted as Lyndel King’s teaching assistant for the University of Minnesota course “Museum Practices.” Additionally, I curated two exhibitions, Silver River and Surfaced: Woodcuts from the Permanent Collection. For WAM’s newsletter I wrote two essays, Silver River and Focus on the Collection: Pixelated Bromide.
WHERE ARE YOU NOW:
Kate Hublou is in her second year of her masters program in Art History and Museum Studies in the Case Western Reserve University – Cleveland Museum of Art Joint Program. In 2016 she was a curatorial fellow in the Cleveland Museum of Art’s Department of European Paintings and Sculpture wherein she conducted material culture research on a seventeenth-century British overmantle woodcarving by Grinling Gibbons in the CMA collection. Her curatorial report was used to secure a grant for its conservation. In the summer of 2018 she began a curatorial internship in the CMA’s Department of Decorative Arts and Design to research and write labels for the forthcoming exhibition Color and Comfort: Modern Swedish Design. In the fall of 2018 she will pursue her PhD in art history and material culture with aspirations of being a curator of decorative arts and design.
