Danielle Carrabino, associate research curator of European art, will give today’s gallery talk.

Offered during the first 100 days of the new U.S. administration, these talks look closely at selected works from across the collections and from around the world to consider questions of political power and activism, human rights and planetary consciousness, national borders and global citizenship, and the role of the arts in various historical contexts.

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.
