Virtual Art Conversations
Join a Gallery Guide on Zoom
While the museum is closed, your group can sign up for a guided tour on the Zoom platform to look at and discuss works of art from the Nasher Museum’s permanent collection within The Collection Galleries and/or the available virtual exhibitions listed below.
These programs are free.
To schedule a virtual art talk, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Nasher gallery guides lead all conversations, which are interactive and last about 75 minutes. Sessions are limited to 12-15 participants. If your group is larger than 15 people, our Education Department can arrange to host your talk with multiple breakout rooms. Select from the virtual exhibitions and themes below, or work with our team to create your own.
Graphic Pull: Contemporary Prints from the Collection
Graphic Pull: Contemporary Prints from the Collection highlights numerous printmaking techniques from the Nasher Museum’s collection with works dating from the 1970s to today. Enjoy an exclusive peak into the museum’s newest exhibition, which explores how contemporary artists continue to use this age-old graphic form while also expanding on its processes and definitions.
We invite you to visit our most comprehensive 360 virtual tour for Graphic Pull: Contemporary Prints from the Collection. Travel through six interactive gallery spaces—and also teleport to Wilson Pavilion, where contemporary prints create new conversations among historical works. Zoom in to see the smallest details in works of art.
VIRTUAL EXHIBITION TOUR: Cultures of the Sea: Art of the Ancient Americas
Cultures of the Sea: Art of the Ancient Americas brings together works of art from 100 BCE to the present that illustrate how the ocean shaped the cultural legacies of these civilizations. The exhibition was co-organized by seven Duke undergraduate students in the course Curatorial Practicum: Exhibition Development and Design.
In this dynamic virtual experience, your group will travel through the gallery, zoom in on ancient ceramics, textiles and carvings – and listen to the audio tour by student co-curators from Duke’s Class of 2020.
The Collection Galleries: Permanent Collection Highlights via Zoom
Virtually, in Zoom sessions, gallery guides can lead your group to explore themes from the permanent collection, within The Collection Galleries and compare works of art that visitors might not see together in the galleries. Available themes include springtime, collages, food, music and travel. You can also request a topic that interests your group. Your virtual conversation will explore several works of art.
