In 1999, artist Maurizio Nannucci created a work in neon around the words “All Art Has Been Contemporary.” Inspired by this concept, we will explore the idea that “contemporary art” is the art of any time that challenges us to reevaluate social, political, economic, or moral values and beliefs. We'll examine contemporary works on view at the Gardner Museum, as well as works in the historic collection, to enhance our understanding and appreciation of art as an agent of change.

Open to all members. $10 per person; space is limited. RSVP online by clicking "GET TICKETS" above, or through the Box Office at 617 278 5156. Not a member? Join now.
