Gallery Talk: Reframing Indigenous Presence at the Harvard Art Museums

In this tour on Thursday, Feb. 9, associate curator Horace D. Ballard will explore the complicated history of 19th-century portraits of Indigenous delegates to Washington, D.C., by painter Henry Inman, and the recurring display of a selection of the paintings at the Harvard Art Museums.

Harvard Art Museums's galleries are full of stories—this series of talks gives visitors a chance to hear the best ones! The talks highlight new works on view, take a fresh look at old favorites, investigate artists’ materials and techniques plus reveal the latest discoveries by curators, conservators, fellows, visiting artists, technologists and other contributors.

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. Please visit the museum visit page to learn about our general policies for visiting the museums. Harvard Art Museums are committed to accessibility for all visitors. For anyone requiring accessibility accommodations, please contact Harvard Art Museums at at least 48 hours in advance.
