Overview

Lectures, performances, panel discussions, artist talks, readings, film screenings, and other events provide thought-provoking perspectives on art from the museum’s collection and exhibitions. Gallery talks and tours—offered on a wide range of artists, cultures, and time periods—are a great way to learn by looking at original works of art.

Upcoming Programs

Film Screening, Redoubt (2018; 134 mins., 3 secs.)

At the center of Matthew Barney’s Redoubt project (2016–19) is an eponymous two-hour film (2018; 134 mins., 3 secs.) that traces the story of a wolf hunt, intertwining the theme of the hunt with those of mythology and artistic creation. Redoubt was shot in Idaho’s rugged Sawtooth Mountains and continues Barney’s long-standing preoccupation with landscape as both a setting and subject in his films.

Inaugurated in 1867, Yale University Art Gallery’s Street Hall housed the first school of art in the country. Its curriculum permitted students from a variety of disciplines to sketch from live models and original works of art. Take part in this centuries-old practice and join us for an evening of guided sketching in the Gallery’s Margaret and Angus Wurtele Sculpture Garden. Materials are provided.

Weather permitting.

Programs Advisory Committee

The Gallery’s new Programs Advisory Committee offers Yale students the chance to inform the content, focus, accessibility, and relevance of Gallery programs—from lectures and talks to performances and film screenings. Working closely with the Programs curator, the committee considers the Gallery’s University and local communities and how those audiences engage with the collection.
