Gallery Talks

The Flâneur Past and Present


This gallery talk will focus on the 19th century concept of the “Flâneur” or city wanderer, and will consider the culture and transformation of modern city life through a close look at selected works in the exhibition The Arcades: Contemporary Art and Walter Benjamin. Led by Theresa Hioki, Education Associate.

Free with Museum admission; RSVP recommended.

This program is made possible, in part, by the Edmond de Rothschild Foundations.
