Curator Conversation: Chrysalis with the Museum's Dr. Sardar

The portrait series Chrysalis, by Greek photographer Olga Stefatou, was set to open on March 21. But when the Museum announced its temporary closure back in mid-March, our curators had to think creatively about how celebrate our new exhibitions outside of a traditional gallery space.

Less than a month later, we are pleased to share with you a conversation with Curator Dr. Marika Sardar, where she opens up about what inspired her to want to bring Chrysalis to the Museum. In the video, she explores the concept behind the series — a collection of photographs of 11 refugee women living in Athens — and shares moving testimonials from two of the Stefatou’s participants.
