Gallery Talk

Harvard Art Museums, 32 Quincy Street
Cambridge MA

Mary Schneider Enriquez, the Houghton Associate Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, will give a gallery talk about the special exhibition Doris Salcedo: The Materiality of Mourning, on view from November 4, 2016 to April 9, 2017.

Free with museums admission. This talk is limited to 15 people and tickets are required. Ten minutes before the talk, tickets will become available at the admissions desk.

Please meet in the Calderwood Courtyard, in front of the digital screens between the shop and the admissions desk. Museums staff will be on hand to collect tickets.

Gallery talks are offered by curators, conservators, fellows, and other museums staff; they focus on aspects of the installation process, exploring both intellectual and more practical considerations. Museums staff will, for example, tease out arguments at play in the galleries, discuss conservation treatments, look closely at specific collections, or draw connections between works of art throughout the museums.
