Since the 1960s, the work of Robert Heinecken has been hugely influential in redrawing photography’s boundaries, creating intersections with montage, sculpture, Conceptual art, and more. Join us to examine a selection of Heinecken’s work, together with some of his own statements about his artistic goals, and consider their relationship to traditional photography.

The exhibition Robert Heinecken: Object Matter includes sexual content that some visitors may find disturbing. Those accompanying children may wish to exercise discretion.

Gallery Sessions, impromptu interactions facilitated by Museum educators that explore the creative process, art history, and the experience of art, take place daily in select galleries. Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free with Museum admission. No registration is required.

Sign language–interpreted Gallery Sessions are held every fourth Sunday of the month at 1:30 p.m. FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.

Join us for lively conversations and engaging activities, facilitated by Museum educators, that offer insightful and unusual ways to engage with collections and special exhibitions.

Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free for members and Museum admission ticket holders. No registration is required.
