What would a prison look like if it were also a refuge? How would we behave in a chapel that was also a bathhouse? What does it feel like to walk through a forest filled with tree limbs and human limbs? In his immersive installation environments, the artist Robert Gober places us in just such uncanny spaces. Join us as we explore these transformative, “theatrical” works in the exhibition Robert Gober: The Heart Is Not A Metaphor.

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.
