Symposium: Dutch Drawings on the Horizon: A Day of Talks in Honor of George S. Abrams

10:00am to 4:00pm

Location: 

Harvard Art Museums, 32 Quincy St

This symposium brings together international experts on 17th-century Dutch drawings in honor of George S. Abrams ’54, HLS ’57. Mr. Abrams and his late wife, Maida, pioneered the collecting of Dutch drawings in the United States and have been a unifying force for study and scholarship in the field. Their generous gift of 110 works in 1999 transformed the Harvard Art Museums’ Dutch drawings collection into one of the most comprehensive in any U.S. museum. Speakers will use the vast breadth and depth of the Abrams Collection as a touchstone for discussing the exceptional draftsmanship of the Dutch Golden Age, from Goltzius to Rembrandt.

In Between Places: Making Contemporary Art in the Middle East

5:30pm to 7:00pm

Location: 

Menschel Hall, Lower Level, Harvard Art Museums, 32 Quincy St

In the Annual Henri Zerner Lecture, Glenn D. Lowry, director of New York’s Museum of Modern Art, uses the idea of “in between-ness” as a social, political, and geographical metaphor to suggest how many artists from the Middle East, including Bouchra Khalili, Oraib Toukan, Wael Shawky, Walid Raad, and Rania Stephan, among others, have developed strategies to make art that is at once rooted in local concerns and engaged with universal issues. Lowry argues that the Middle East is not an isolated and foreign place but is a case study for how we locate ourselves in time and space in a rapidly changing world, one where social and cultural mores are in flux.
