The Graduate Student Lectureship Program provides local art and art history graduate students the opportunity to research and present public lectures on works on view at the Modern. These focused gallery talks discuss artworks within a thematic framework designed to provide new insights on familiar pieces. After close observation, rigorous research, and original analysis, students design an interactive tour that fosters discussion with visitors in the galleries. Each thirty-minute talk is presented twice over the course of the semester, allowing Museum visitors multiple opportunities to attend. Scheduled to take place this fall prior to certain Tuesday Evening lectures and on select Saturdays, these discussions are free to the public with the price of admission to the galleries and begin in the Museum lobby.
