The Sue and Edgar Wachenheim III Painting and Sculpture Gallery, Gallery 5, fifth floor

What is art? Consider this question as we discuss how Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel and In Advance of a Broken Arm represent changing ideas of what constituted a work of art in the 20th century.

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.

FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
