Elect/Ability: Pride, Prejudice, and the Female Candidate


Today’s American political landscape showcases a diversity of strong female candidates, the culmination of a proud but contested history of women running for political office. This exhibition, drawn from the Schlesinger’s collections, presents a diversity of candidates and the struggles that they continue to face in the press, on the campaign trail, and once in office. Nevertheless, they persist.

Gala Porras-Kim: Precipitation for an Arid Landscape


During her 2019–2020 fellowship at Harvard Radcliffe Institute, Gala Porras-Kim researched how items from the Sacred Cenote of Chichén Itzá, a Maya site in the Yucatan peninsula of Mexico, arrived in the collections of Harvard’s Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology. Precipitation for an Arid Landscape grows out of that research, presenting new work that explores how sacred objects may continue to perform their original functions once they enter museum collections and are subject to institutional paradigms of classification, conservation, and display.

Registration open
Date & Time Monday, February 7, 2022
through Saturday, July 2, 2022
Location Johnson-Kulukundis Family Gallery, Byerly Hall
