We have had an exciting week of APAG-related events!
Fourth Annual APAG Seminar
Photography archivists, curators, lawyers, appraisers, collection holders, and conservators gathered at the International Center for Photography in New York City. Along with other panels, presentations, and workshops, Alla Efimova, Loren Miller, and Mary Engel (APAG president and founder) presented projects in a panel titled “Museum Curators: How Do They Find Work for their Exhibitions and Collections?”

APAG West Event
In San Francisco, APAG West and the Appraisers Association of America hosted a panel on the market for a posthumous photographic collection. Promoters of Arthur Rothstein’s work, Annie Segan and Brodie Hefner presented on his New Deal photographs, social, and artistic legacies. Lindsay Nivens-Frosini discussed issues of valuation and appraisal that come up when working with photographic works. The event was held at Canessa Gallery, in conjunction with the newly opened exhibition, When Government Worked: New Deal Picture Stories by Arthur Rothstein.
