    Michelle Erickson, Visiting Artist, for the Arts at Harvard Ceramics Program; Robert D. Mowry, Alan J. Dworsky Curator of Chinese Art, Division of Asian and Mediterranean Art, Harvard Art Museums; and Melissa A. Moy, Cunningham Assistant Curator of Asian Art, Division of Asian and Mediterranean Art, Harvard Art Museums

    Chinese blue-and-white porcelains have greatly in?uenced ceramic traditions around the world, and continue to inspire artists today. Michelle Erickson and curators Robert Mowry and Melissa Moy will discuss the impact of Chinese porcelains on Korean and Islamic objects on view, and the recent resurgence of “blue-and-white” surface decoration in contemporary ceramics. Erickson’s work incorporates traditional techniques to create narratives about political, social, and environmental issues both past and present.

    This series considers objects from more than one point of view. The informal talks, many of them by Harvard Art Museums curators, conservators, and educators and Harvard University faculty members, are designed to stimulate thinking about works of art and to encourage participants to explore their own ways of seeing.

    Free with the price of admission.

    Gallery talks are informal and include discussion. Limited to 25 participants; please arrive early.
