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.
