These Graduate Gallery Talks are the culmination of the Modern’s Graduate Tours Seminar, a course for area graduate students in the arts that is offered every fall by the education department. Members and the public are welcome to attend these specialized tours and benefit from the focused research and hard work undertaken by course participants. Two focused gallery talks will be presented by the students, each given twice.
