The venerable Frick Collection is moving to a temporary new home while its 5th Avenue facility expands and upgrades. For the next two years, the Frick will operate a new venue, the Frick Madison, within the Breuer Building on 78th and Madison, previous home to the Met Breuer and the Whitney Museum. This new venue will mark a departure from the institution’s customary residential presentation. Join us for a lively, illuminating discussion about the challenges of displaying and installing an international, world-class collection in a temporary facility. Directors of the Frick and their design team will discuss the strategy and design to juxtapose their collection of Old Masters, such as Bellini, Rembrandt, and Vermeer, within the confines of a Brutalist 20th-century landmark building.

Moderator: Susan West, Project Development Director, Big Show Consulting & Management

Panelists: Annabelle Selldorf, FAIA, Principal, Selldorf Architects; Anna Boatwright, Head of Business Strategy & Development, The Frick Collection; Carolyn W. Straub, AIA, LEED AP, Associate Director for Capital Projects, The Frick Collection; Stephen Saitas, Principal, Stephen Saitas Designs
