Student educators lead interactive tours of this season’s exhibitions Kahlil Robert Irving: Archaeology of the Present and Santiago Sierra: 52 Canvases Exposed to Mexico City’s Air. Through guided discussion, participants will explore how both artists engage with the materiality of contemporary life, from the physical residue of air pollution to the sculptural topography of urban refuse.  

Free and open to the public. Please check in at the Welcome Desk when arriving for the tour. 


This program is funded in part by the Ken and Nancy Kranzberg Fund, the Trio Foundation, and a grant from the Women’s Society of Washington University.
