Facilitated Discussion: Memory

Join members of the Museum’s education department for an interactive discussion exploring memory. By placing an artwork from the Museum’s collections in a historical context, and by considering a work’s technique and materials, participants will be encouraged to relate it to different aspects of memory, including personal and collective memory, nostalgia, and trauma. In Zoom breakout rooms, participants are encouraged to turn on their cameras and unmute their microphones to join the discussion. Spots are limited, and registration is required; details and free registration here.

On View
Modigliani at the Kimbell Art Museum


Three works by Amedeo Modigliani, which you may recognize from past visits to the Museum, are now on view in the Kimbell Art Museum’s galleries as “guests of honor.” Drawn from the Henry and Rose Pearlman Foundation and on long-term loan to the Princeton University Art Museum, the works are the limestone sculpture Head (ca. 1910–11) and two paintings—portraits of the poet, designer, and filmmaker Jean Cocteau (1916) and the Russian sculptor Léon Indenbaum (1916). The works will be on display at the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth, Texas, through October 30, 2022.
