She will focus on works by Nam June Paik, Nalini Malani, Tania Bruguera, and others. Following the talk, Mary Schneider Enriquez, the Houghton Associate Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, and Marina Isgro, the inaugural Nam June Paik Research Fellow at the Harvard Art Museums, will join Lewis for a conversation about new media in museums.
