at home: Art in Context

Art in Context, the Yale Center for British Art's gallery talk series, is now online. Presented by faculty, staff, visiting scholars, and student guides, these lectures are held on the last Tuesday of each month during the academic year. Each talk focuses on a particular work of art in the museum's collections or a special exhibition, and takes an in-depth look at its style, subject matter, technique, or time period.

About this program

Over the course of Bridget Riley’s long career she has had a productive relationship with US museums, galleries, collectors, and artists. This talk sheds light on some of the relationships she formed in the US and how they have shaped the production and reception of her work.
