About the Talks

When our building closed in March, we began to offer online talks as an opportunity for members to stay connected to the Barnes and learn more about the collection. Whether you missed them the first time around, or you’d like to watch again, we’ve collected them all in one place for your convenience. Learn more about your favorite works or artists in the collection, discover archival treasures, and see conservation practices behind the scenes.

Watch one of the talks below, and see them all on YouTube.
