Pop-Up Exhibition: REFUGEE x USUN


When the Annenberg Foundation called at 5pm on a Friday, I went into high gear conceiving and executing creative solutions for a pop-up exhibition of Martin’s artwork from the exhibition “REFUGEE” in time for the United Nations General Assembly and an associated state dinner. By partnering with the US Mission to the United Nations, The Annenberg Foundation, The White House as well as trusted vendor/collaborators at Bednark Studio and — despite insane security limitations and knee-deep facilities management protocols — we were able to turn the red tape czars into supporters and bring the work to new and influential audiences in a matter of days and hours, not weeks.
