Gallery Talks: Activation of Moholy-Nagy’s Light Prop

19 March 12:30pm - 1:00pm
Organized by: Harvard Art Museums
Venue: Harvard Art Museums
32 Quincy Street

Melissa Venator, the Stefan Engelhorn Curatorial Fellow in the Busch-Reisinger Museum, will give this gallery talk.


Is it an experimental lighting device, the subject of New Vision films and photographs, or a motorized kinetic sculpture? The Light Prop has expanded our definition of art for 90 years. Learn more about this fascinating object and see it in operation, in conjunction with the exhibition The Bauhaus and Harvard (February 8–July 28, 2019).


Free with museums admission. This talk is limited to 15 people and tickets are required. Ten minutes before the talk, tickets will become available at the admissions desk.


Please meet in the Calderwood Courtyard, in front of the digital screens between the shop and the admissions desk. Museums staff will be on hand to collect tickets.
