ONLINE: Lunchtime Art Talk on Zarina
While the museum is temporarily closed, Lunchtime Art Talks take place online every Wednesday at 12:30 p.m. The Hammer's curatorial department leads free, insightful, short discussions about works of art from the Hammer's collection.
This talk on Zarina’s "The Cities Blotted into the Wilderness (Adrienne Rich after Ghalib)", a portfolio of nine woodcuts from 2003, is led by Allegra Pesenti, associate director and senior curator of the Grunwald Center for the Graphic Arts.
Pesenti organized the 2012 Hammer exhibition Zarina: Paper Like Skin, featuring approximately 60 works dating from 1961 to 2011. It was the first museum retrospective of the Indian-born American artist, who passed away in April 2020.
