Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Boston

2005, 6 and 56 min

A video art installation exhibited as part of the show Chairs which was subsequently made into a full length documentary. This impressionistic story weaves together months of conversations and interactions between curators and artists as they attempt to collaborate on a new show in one of the world's great historic museums. Indian photographer Dayanita Singh, the Italian furniture expert Faustio Calderai, the designer Andrea Anastasio and the Gardner museum curators created a show that the New York Times calls "really beautiful" but which seemed certain to unravel only weeks before opening.
