Meet Your New Board Members

The ARCS Board is pleased to welcome new members of the Board, John Robinette, Manager of Storage and Installation at Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros, and Jenny Wilson, Registrar, Exhibitions at Vancouver Art Gallery.  Their terms will begin after the June 2017 Board meeting.

John Robinette, Manager of Storage and Installation at Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros
As the Manager of Storage and Installation, John oversees all storage facilities and locales where the family maintain their collection and handles most of the logistics for their extensive international loan program. John also sits on the planning committee for the ARCS introductory symposium in Mexico City – the first in Latin America.

Jenny Wilson, Registrar, Exhibitions at Vancouver Art Gallery
Jenny has worked in museums for over 25 years. She now works on logistics--from loan agreements and insurance to unpacking and installation-- of incoming loans for a very busy exhibition schedule and oversees the logistics of outgoing touring exhibitions.  She has had the opportunity to work with many contemporary artists and has gained much experience in shipping artwork of all shapes and sizes via air, ocean and ground. 

Congreso ARCS

ARCS is pleased to announce its first event in Latin America, in beautiful Mexico City! This two day event will take place at the Museo Nacional de Arte on October 9 and 10, 2017.

The second day will consist of behind the scene tours of the Museo Jumex (Fundación Jumex Arte Contemporáneo) and the Museo Soumaya (Fundación Carlos Slim, A.C.) 

This event will be open to local Mexican museum professionals and ARCS members only.  Registration opens July 10, 2017 through the ARCS website.
