On Thursday, May 13, 2021 the WPI gathered Huffa Frobes-Cross, project manager of the Tom Wesselmann Digital Catalogue Raisonné, and Samantha Rowe, archivist, to introduce the second iteration of the Discovering Wesselmann webinar series. Discovering Wesselmann: The Early Exhibitions considered the sparsely documented shows form Judson Gallery, Tanager Gallery, and Green Gallery between the late 1950s and early 1960s.
The webinar concluded with a conversation with special guest Marcus Ratliff, the principal founder of Judson Gallery.
The Discovering Wesselmann series continues the WPI’s own exploration of Wesselmann’s archives, as we prepare our records for WPI Digital Archives and bolster the Tom Wesselmann Digital Corpus with more material.
Note: Due to technical issues, the first two minutes of Discovering Wesselmann were recorded after the webinar broadcast. The content was recreated to the exact same script, with no changes to the slideshow or images displayed.
