Join curator Lynette Roth for a closer look at Chair Shadows #3 (1931), a recently acquired photograph by German artist Raoul Hausmann.

Our galleries are full of stories—this series of drop-in talks gives visitors a chance to hear the best ones! The talks highlight new works on view, take a fresh look at old favorites, investigate artists’ materials and techniques, and reveal the latest discoveries by curators, conservators, fellows, visiting artists, technologists, and other contributors.

Offered by:
Lynette Roth, Daimler Curator of the Busch-Reisinger Museum, and Head, Division of Modern and Contemporary Art

Free with museum admission. Gallery talks are limited to 15 people and tickets are required. Ten minutes before each 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. Museum staff will be on hand to collect tickets.
