The talk looks at the Busch-Reisinger Museum’s history and the first accessions of sculptures from modern artists. Curatorial fellow Clemens Ottenhausen will share some of the collection’s key characteristics as well as situate the museum’s activities under director Charles L. Kuhn (1930–1968) in a larger context of an increasingly transatlantic art scene.

Led by:
Clemens Ottenhausen, Renke B. and Pamela M. Thye Curatorial Fellow in the Busch-Reisinger Museum, Harvard Art Museums

This talk is part of the series Fresh Perspectives, an initiative that centers the role of the museumgoer. Like talks in the ReFrame series, these programs highlight diverse voices and broad interpretations of difficult histories and untold narratives. This approach encourages visitors to consider alternative ways of understanding an object, culture, or theme.

This talk will take place online via Zoom. The event is free and open to all, but registration is required. To register, please complete this online form.
