Modern Art and Modernity

Exhibition Website

Aug 27 2016 - Jan 8 2017

This University Teaching Gallery installation explores defining moments in the development of modern European and American art from the 18th through 20th century. A range of media—from drawing, painting, and printmaking to photography and photomontage—is included.

This installation complements a course taught by Ewa Lajer-Burcharth, the William Dorr Boardman Professor of Fine Arts; Maria Gough, the Joseph Pulitzer, Jr., Professor of Modern Art; and Benjamin Buchloh, the Andrew W. Mellon Professor of Modern Art, all in the Department of History of Art and Architecture at Harvard University.

The University Teaching Gallery serves faculty and students affiliated with Harvard’s Department of History of Art and Architecture. Semester-long installations are mounted in conjunction with undergraduate and graduate courses, supporting instruction in the critical analysis of art.
