Installing an Immersive New Ceramics Gallery

June 11, 2024

Marie-Laure Buku Pongo, Assistant Curator of Decorative Arts, invites us behind the scenes of the installation of the Frick’s new second-floor ceramics gallery. The room will showcase mostly pieces of eighteenth-century French faience—a major gift from the collection of Sidney R. Knafel—and will complement two other spaces within the museum’s renovated home, displaying gifts of Meissen porcelain from Henry H. Arnhold and Du Paquier porcelain from the Melinda and Paul Sullivan Collection. Taking inspiration from the porcelain room at Frick Madison and the private installation of the Knafel collection, the immersive and colorful new gallery will enable visitors to discover, or rediscover, an important group of the Frick’s decorative arts.
