Tag Along on a Tour: Gifford’s Leander’s Tower on the Bosporus

November 20, 2018

Curious what a gallery tour with one of our student guides is like? In this video series, we give you the chance to find out! Watch excerpts from presentations by our undergraduate guides about select objects—then check our calendar and make plans to attend a tour in person. Tours are free with museums admission.

Here, senior Mahnoor Ali talks to visitors about Sanford Robinson Gifford’s Leander’s Tower on the Bosporus. Her tour, titled Exploitation and Reclamation, focuses on art that marginalizes or exotifies non-western cultures. She’ll also discuss the responsibility of both artists and viewers to fill in the gaps created by exploitative visual narratives.
