Gallery Talk

Harvard Art Museums, 32 Quincy Street
Cambridge MA

A curatorial assistant from each division—Jessica Ficken from the Division of Modern and Contemporary Art, Yan Yang from the Division of Asian and Mediterranean Art, and Casey Monahan from the Division of European and American Art—will give today’s gallery talk.

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.
