Mary Schneider Enriquez, the Houghton Associate Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, will give a gallery talk about the special exhibition Doris Salcedo: The Materiality of Mourning, on view from November 4, 2016 to April 9, 2017.

Gallery talks are offered by curators, conservators, fellows, and other museums staff; they focus on aspects of the installation process, exploring both intellectual and more practical considerations. Museums staff will, for example, tease out arguments at play in the galleries, discuss conservation treatments, look closely at specific collections, or draw connections between works of art throughout the museums.
