KEEP IN TOUCH… NO HANDS! #3 – FRAME NETWORK, VIRUS, AND QUARANTINE

April 10, 2020 | FRAME France & North America

In these troubled times, FRAME ensures the continuity of information sharing by connecting its members throughout Canada, the United States and France.

For the duration of the pandemic, FRAME will gather information from colleagues in the network and regularly publicize the variety of online initiatives for sharing collections, exhibitions, lectures, films, games and more devised by FRAME museums to maintain the connection with their worldwide audiences and remain accessible to all even while their buildings are closed.

In this third issue, we call your attention to a series of hash tags museums are using to invite their audiences to participate in global outreach efforts, including: (#Culturecheznous ; #ConfinementMuseeURL ; #Progageonslartpaslevirus ; #MuseumFromHome ; #MuseumMomentofZen ; #Spreadartnotvirus), or to tighten their ties with flowers (#MuseumBouquet), or to pay tribute to the medical community through their collections (#MuseumsThankHealthHeroes).

We hope you will enjoy browsing through these digital outreach programs created by your colleagues in the FRAME network. We encourage you to share your new ideas and programs with us so we can continue to highlight the many online resources available at FRAME museums. Marguerite d’Aprile Quigley and Emilie Vanhaesebroucke are available to help you, if needed, or to provide e-introductions between colleagues in the FRAME network.

MARGUERITE D’APRILE QUIGLEY TO LEAD FRAME IN NORTH AMERICA

January 8, 2020 | FRAME North America

(New York, NY) William B. Beekman, Co-President of the French American Museum Exchange (FRAME), has announced the appointment of Marguerite d’Aprile Quigley as the new Executive Director of FRAME North America, effective January 15, 2020. In this position, Ms. Quigley will advocate for and support participation of 16 North American art museums with their French counterparts in this distinguished international cultural collaborative. She will succeed Luisa Adrianzen Guyer.

Ms. Quigley is an experienced executive with over 25 years of successful leadership in arts management, exhibition and program development, and communications within cultural organizations and higher education institutions. She served as the Director of Communications for the Lewis Center for the Arts at Princeton University through its initial period of rapid growth and as the Director of External Affairs for the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, where she worked with more than 400 arts organizations across the state. Prior to these positions, Quigley worked with internationally renowned curators and scholars in America, France, and Italy as a senior editor of the J. Paul Getty Art and Architecture Thesaurus, a seven-volume reference work published by Oxford University Press, and an embedded digital translator which facilitates the interchange of cultural information and programming of all sorts. Most recently, Quigley was the Founding Director of the Center for Arts Programming at Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts in Old Lyme, CT, where she developed a robust series of exhibitions, lectures, art programs, workshops and cultural collaborations for the Connecticut Shoreline community.

“We are delighted to welcome Marguerite, and we are excited to embrace her broad knowledge, collaborative spirit, strategic communication skills, and deep experience in helping us to build FRAME’s recognition and resources over the next decade,” said Beekman.

Anne-Solène Rolland, Director of the Musées de France and Co-President of FRAME in France, is “enthusiastic about welcoming Marguerite d’Aprile Quigley as the new Executive Director of FRAME in North America and soon building with her – and with the other members of the Board – the future of our organization”. As her counterpart in France, Emilie Vanhaesebroucke is “looking forward to forging close relationships with Marguerite and to working in tandem with her to the benefit of the FRAME network.”

“It is an honor for me to accept this prestigious appointment and build on the tremendous vision of FRAME’s founder, the late Elizabeth Rohatyn, and the partnerships established by my esteemed colleagues in both North America and France,” said Quigley. She went on to say, “I am also delighted to return to work in international cultural collaborations, which is how my career first began.”

Quigley holds bachelor’s degrees in art history and applied design from the College of New Rochelle and a master’s in museum studies from the Cooperstown Graduate Program. She was born in New York and is a former long-time resident of Princeton, NJ and currently resides in Essex, CT.

Quigley will work with Beekman and other members of FRAME’s leadership team to sponsor and support new curatorial and educational programs among the international network of 32 North American and French museums.
