Join us for a conversation with Megan Randall, Assistant Projects Conservator, and Peter Oleksik, Associate Media Conservator, about the fabrication and care of Tauba Auerbach’s Altar/Engine (2015). Moderated by Michelle Kuo, The Marlene Hess Curator of Painting and Sculpture.
In Lieu of the Hand is a discussion series about the making and maintenance of art from the perspective of museum conservators, emphasizing artworks in which the artist’s hand is not always directly responsible for the “final” object, and the stories of those who work behind the scenes to complete these works. This spring’s conversations will focus on artworks in the exhibition New Order: Art and Technology in the Twenty-First Century. Meet in the New Order galleries on Floor 2.
