Gallery Talk: Dare to Know: Prints and Drawings in the Age of Enlightenment
Sunday, Jan. 1, join graduate student Jordan Hallmark for an in-depth discussion around Jean-Baptiste Chapuy’s print depicting a pivotal moment in the Haitian Revolution, on view in the special exhibition "Dare to Know: Prints and Drawings in the Age of Enlightenment." Jordan is a Ph.D. candidate in Harvard University's Department of History of Art and Architecture.
Featuring approximately 150 works on paper and other related objects, "Dare to Know" explores how the graphic arts inspired, shaped and gave immediacy to new ideas in the Enlightenment era by encouraging individuals to follow their own reason when seeking to know more. An illustrated catalogue with 26 thematic essays—an A to Z exploration of the Enlightenment quest for understanding and change—accompanies the exhibition.
Gallery talks are limited to 18 people, and reservations are required. At 10 a.m. the day of the event, reservations will open and may be arranged online. The gallery talk reservation will also serve as a general museum reservation. If required, visitors will pay the museum admission fee upon arrival. Please meet in the Calderwood Courtyard, in front of the digital screens between the shop and the admissions desk.
