Nasher Education is excited to present a new, innovative series of gallery programs. Two preview sessions will be announced this summer, with an official launch in fall 2012. The Gallery Lab series brings the spirit of experimentation to the Nasher Galleries. Join us for informal conversations, interactive presentations, performances, demonstrations and unexpected viewpoints on art with artists and voices from other disciplines.
Expand your concept of a gallery talk and discover a fresh perspective on what it means to engage with the arts. Expect to be surprised!
