Louise Lawler has long been interested in changing the way we view images. By photographing some of the world’s most iconic artworks in compromised positions—in storage, in collectors’ dining rooms, or from odd angles—she exposes their vulnerability and their status as commodities. Join us in the exhibition Louise Lawler: WHY PICTURES NOW as we discuss Lawler’s groundbreaking artistic strategies.

This session is led by Lauren Kaplan.

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.

FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
