Public Lecture: What is Exhibition Design?

The Martin Art Gallery is pleased to present a virtual public lecture by Alexandra Shanley, the exhibition designer for The Woman Who Says No: Françoise Gilot Lithographs.

Exhibition design is a multidisciplinary practice that requires a wide range of skills from interior to graphic design. Exhibition designers work closely with curators to translate an exhibition's theme or narrative into visual storytelling. Shanley will discuss the process from planning the arrangement of artworks to creating wall labels and promotional materials.  

Alexandra Shanley is a design professional who has over ten years of experience in the non-profit sector. She earned her M.A. in Exhibition Design from the Corcoran School of the Arts & Design at The George Washington University and has worked for numerous institutions in Santa Barbara, Washington, D.C., and Los Angeles, including the Getty Museum. She currently resides in San Diego and works as a graphic designer for a commercial real estate company creating marketing material, environmental graphics, and design assets.

Public Lecture: What Are NFTs?

The Martin Art Gallery is pleased to present a virtual public lecture by Alisha Anglin, the artist behind MAG’s current digital exhibition Vivid Chaos.

In her talk, Anglin will discuss what NFTs are, how they are created and how the NFT market works. She will also share how she began making NFTs and how the digital medium relates to her practice as a fine artist and painter. Anglin will share resources for those interested in minting NFTs and give advice to those who are curious about the process.

Born and raised on Long Island, Anglin currently lives and works as a full-time abstract artist in New York. She is self-taught and started painting at the age of 10. Her newfound passion for NFTs started in March of 2021 when she decided to dive deep into Web3 and the world of NFTs which incorporates concepts such as decentralization, blockchain technologies, and token-based economics. Since then, she has been creating and selling her work to collectors worldwide on OpenSea, Exchange.Art, Objkt and Known Origin NFT marketplace platforms. She is the host and founder of the HOUSE OF ABSTRACT twitter space podcast which you can listen to live every Friday 12pm EST.
