How do contemporary artists explore space and experience in their work? Examine how Rachel Whiteread, Mona Hatoum, Douglas Gordon, and others activate public, private, and institutional environments.

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.
