In conjunction with the McMullen’s current exhibition, Taking Shape: Abstraction from the Arab World, 1950s–1980s (on tour after its debut at the Grey in 2020), Assistant Director Diana Larsen, aided by the Museum’s Student Ambassadors, will offer a virtual presentation on Orientalism and works of expedition photography in the Museum’s collection. Visitors are invited to learn from the presenters, ask questions, and share their knowledge and observations.
