Gallery Talk

Harvard Art Museums, 32 Quincy Street

Curatorial fellow Frances Gallart Marques will examine ancient and modern depictions of luxurious dining experiences.

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

Free with museums 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. Museums staff will be on hand to collect tickets.
