    This talk will focus on the recent installations of provocative, newly acquired pieces by Robert Gober, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, and Doris Salcedo, among others, as well as extraordinary works by artists such as Josef Albers, Hans Arp, and Robert Rauschenberg that have not been shown for years. We will discuss the visual and thematic dialogues created by the juxtapositions of these works, exploring surrealism, the languages of abstraction, notions of the body, and the means by which art confronts the sociopolitical issues of its time.

    Free with the price of admission. Open to the public.

    Limited to 25 participants; please arrive early.
