June 21, 2018
Meet in Gallery 100
Free with museum admission

What’s in a gesture? Sometimes an entire story hinges on the flick of a finger, the shift of a glance, or the angle of a head turned just so. Educator Sam Anderson-Ramos guides a conversation around artworks in which the bodies do all the talking.
