Gallery Talk: Intersections

May 11, 2018
Meet in Griffin Court
Free with museum admission

The theme for this month's Intersections program is the evolving art museum. 

Join Paulina Fedotova and Nenette Luarca-Shoaf to discuss what role art museums should play today. We’ll explore select work in the Architecture and Design galleries, including the exhibition, Max Lamb: Exercises in Seating, to consider the ways in which the art museum is evolving in relation to its visitors and to the artwork it displays. 

In this interactive lecture series, the Art Institute encyclopedic collection serves as a catalyst for conversations about urgent social questions and current events. Come ready to participate and create community through dialogue about art. Educators select featured artworks and post them here one week in advance of each discussion in order to be responsive to an ever-changing world.   

Visit the calendar to view upcoming Intersections programs on the second Friday of each month.
