Gallery Talk

Harvard Art Museums, 32 Quincy Street
Cambridge MA

Mary Schneider Enriquez, the Houghton Associate Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, will give this gallery talk. The talk is offered in conjunction with the special exhibition Crossing Lines, Constructing Home: Displacement and Belonging in Contemporary Art, on view September 6, 2019 through January 5, 2020 in the Special Exhibitions Gallery on Level 3.

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.

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.
