Gallery Talk

Harvard Art Museums, 32 Quincy Street
Cambridge MA

Curatorial fellow Frances Gallart Marques will discuss the enduring and problematic allure of animal fights in art and entertainment.

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:
Frances Gallart Marques, Frederick Randolph Grace Curatorial Fellow in Ancient Art
