    “Walls” is the theme of this year’s cultural events and lectures at Wellesley College. This panel will take as its starting point a literal interpretation of the theme in a collaborative installation by Daniela Rivera and Christine Rogers on view at the Davis. Rivera and Rogers’s installation consists of paintings and photographs of the walls of European museums, including the Louvre, the Tate Modern, and the Prado. A portrayal of physical walls, the piece is also a philosophical rumination on relationships, support, desire, and the role of museums. The panel’s discussion will extend to walls and boundaries relevant to works by other artists in the exhibition: family and the museum; urban and rural spaces; the viewer and the work of art. In addition to Rivera and Rogers, participants will include Judith Black and Meredith Martin, among others.
