Gallery Talk: Screening the View

August 5, 2016
Meet in Gallery 100
Free with museum admission

From the resolutely utilitarian to the positively personal, screens protect us from prying eyes, moderate the heat of a fire, or demarcate architectural space. Artists may exploit these expansive supports for their compositions, or use materials in innovative ways. Join museum educator Annie Morse for a wide-ranging exploration of a number of noteworthy screens.
