Each year, the Gardner Museum presents a number of lectures, including a series that brings together a group of speakers to discuss topics relevant to art and the historic collection, as well as occasional lectures like book talks. The Art of Memory, our current lecture series, revolves around the exhibition Sophie Calle: Last Seen. Memory is an essential part of being human, coloring our thoughts and feelings about time, place, and relationships. How memory is filtered through personal experience is one of the ideas explored in the exhibition. Join us for a series of lectures as we explore the complexities of remembering (and forgetting).
Also not to be missed this March is the Stout Memorial Lecture on conservation. Held each year in honor of George L. Stout, the Museum’s Director from 1955 to 1970 and a founder of modern art conservation, the Stout Lecture celebrates excellence in preservation and understanding of cultural heritage.
Media sponsor for The Art of Memory: Boston Globe Media, Inc. Additional exhibition support for Sophie Calle: Last Seen provided by the Consulate General of France in Boston and Nicolas Feuillatte Champagne. The Stout Memorial Lecture has been made possible with the generous support of the Richard C. von Hess Foundation. Thursday evening lectures are made possible in part by the Barbara Lee Program Fund. The Museum receives operating support from the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
Lectures: Richard Brettell
