Last Look

Join us for four thematic tours led by the Museum’s Curatorial Department! Each tour—which will last approximately 45 minutes—explores a particular theme across exhibitions, and looks at specific artworks in depth. These highly interactive tours encourage audience questions and participation while providing a unique opportunity for the public to be in dialogue with the Museum’s curators!
1 pm: Approaches to Portraiture 
Hallie Ringle, Assistant Curator, and Nectar Knuckles, Curatorial Fellow, select works from each exhibition that explore the concept of construction as it relates to portraiture and selfhood.

2 pm: Object Lessons
Doris Zhao, Curatorial Assistant, highlights works on view that critique and subvert systems of aesthetic and functional value. Featured artists, including Matthew Angelo Harrison, Stephanie J. Williams and Julia Phillips, question what it means for an object to be considered “art," calling attention to the underlying power and histories of objects.

3 pm: Investigations in Multiplicity 
Connie Choi, Associate Curator of the Permanent Collection, and Charmaine Branch, Curatorial Fellow, discuss the multidimensional aspects of space, self, culture and more explored by artists represented in the current exhibitions.

4 pm: Local Flavor
Eric Booker, Exhibition Coordinator, highlights works from each exhibition that consider specific locations and communities as sites for creative action and artistic inspiration. 

This event is a part of Last Look, a four-day celebration of art and artists from our final exhibition season in our current building.
