Insight: In Dialogue: Indigenous Voices in the Galleries

Join museum staff and council members in a conversation about what this collaboration looked like, from contributing to community voice videos and labels, consulting on the accuracy of content, and developing big ideas in the Home/Land section.

Insight: Mission Impossible - Planning for the New Galleries


If you think renovating your bathroom or kitchen is a complex process, imagine what it looked like for a seven-floor, 146,000-square foot museum building. Meet the team who played a key role in organizing and overseeing the new galleries, from drawings to reality.

From preparing for the undertaking (trotting the globe with fellow staff in search of inspiration from other museums, collaborating with nearly every department of the DAM, coordinating the movement of artworks, working with designers, and more) to the many surprises and triumphs as it all unfolded, they'll answer the question that's on all our minds...How in the world did they pull it off?Walk away with a new appreciation for the many hands and all that went into planning and execution, from individual galleries to the entire building.

Qamar Adamjee is a lecturer at Rutgers University, New Jersey and a former curator of Islamic and Indian art at the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco. Adamjee's research interests revolve around artworks produced in the interstices of cultural traditions and in the artistic and intellectual worlds of the people who made or used them. She has organized exhibitions and published on a range of subjects and artistic mediums, including Islamic, Hindu and Sikh art; Indian paintings and sculpture; 19th-century photography, painting, and prints.

Mexicana: Historical Sources in Modern and Contemporary Mexican Fashion

Join us for this engaging lecture that will present how historical sources and craft traditions greatly influenced 20th and 21st century fashion design in Mexico through short biographical profiles of key designers from the period.

Through Another Lens: Georgia O'Keeffe's Photography

The pathbreaking artist Georgia O’Keeffe (1887–1986) is revered for her iconic paintings of flowers, skyscrapers, animal skulls, and Southwestern landscapes. Her photographic work, however, has not been explored in depth until now. This exhibition is the first major investigation of O’Keeffe’s photography and traces the artist’s thirty-year exploration of the medium.

Join exhibition curator Lisa Volpe as she will discuss O’Keeffe’s relationship to photography, her personal use of the medium, the research that brought these images to light, and the discoveries still waiting to be made.
