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. This talk is offered in conjunction with the special exhibition Crossing Lines, Constructing Home, on view at the Harvard Art Museums through January 5, 2020.

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.

Crossing Lines, Constructing Home was curated by Mary Schneider Enriquez, the Houghton Associate Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, and Makeda Best, the Richard L. Menschel Curator of Photography, Harvard Art Museums.

The exhibition is made possible by the Rosenblatt Fund for Postwar American Art, the Agnes Gund Fund for Modern and Contemporary Art, and the John R. and Barbara Robinson Family Fund for Photography. Exhibition-related programming is supported by the M. Victor Leventritt Lecture Series Endowment Fund, the Nancy S. Nichols Memorial Lecture Fund, and the Richard L. Menschel Endowment Fund. Modern and contemporary art programs at the Harvard Art Museums are made possible in part by generous support from the Emily Rauh Pulitzer and Joseph Pulitzer, Jr., Fund for Modern and Contemporary Art.
