In her installation Disrupt the View: Arlene Shechet at the Harvard Art Museums, contemporary sculptor Arlene Shechet presents her recent work alongside historical German, Japanese, and Chinese porcelain objects from the Harvard Art Museums.

Join curator Lynette Roth as she talks with Shechet about her artistic process, her past collaborations with German porcelain manufactory workers, and how she recontextualizes these remarkable objects to speak to the larger history of labor, class, and global trade.

Disrupt the View is on view through July 6, 2025.
