Gallery Talk

Harvard Art Museums
32 Quincy Street, Cambridge, MA

Rachel Parikh, the Calderwood Curatorial Fellow in South Asian Art; Frances Gallart Marques, the Frederick Randolph Grace Curatorial Fellow in Ancient Art; and Whitney Christopher, technology fellow in the Digital Infrastructure and Emerging Technology department, will give this gallery talk.

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.
