The Modern’s Graduate Student Lecture Program presents Graduate Gallery Talks, providing the opportunity to hear area graduate students in art and art history discuss works on view at the Modern. These dynamic 30-minute gallery talks are the result of in-depth research and the students’ original analysis, offering insight into a selected group of artworks connected by theme. Each public talk is offered twice to allow for multiple opportunities to attend.

Admission to the galleries is free for participants.
