About the Talk

Barnes members and Walters Art Museum, Baltimore, members are invited to attend this special online program that explores unique objects in each collection. Inspired by the Walters exhibition Objects of Curiosity: What Will We Discover?, the conversation features Lisa Anderson-Zhu, curator of provenance and of ancient Mediterranean art at the Walters Art Museum, and Martha Lucy, deputy director for research, interpretation and education at the Barnes. Anderson-Zhu and Lucy will explore a range of curious artworks by asking specific questions: What is it? Is it real? Where does it belong?

This talk will be livestreamed on the Barnes’s Visual Experience Platform (VXP). The VXP is an exciting new technology developed by the Barnes that allows online participants to interact with works of art and see up close details like never before!

Registrants will be emailed a link for the talk the day prior.
