Elizabeth Gallerani, Curator of Mellon Academic Programs

Labeltalk is an exhibition series that aims to explore works of art from a broad range of perspectives. Labeltalk 2013: India is the ninth exhibition in the series, which began in 1995 with support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

This Labeltalk focuses on Indian art, a strength of our collection. Twenty-seven Williams professors participated. To highlight their different perspectives—both professional and personal—three professors worked together around a work of art selected for the exhibition. Each participant looked closely at his or her work of art and then wrote a short response without any specific prompt.

We are grateful to the professors for the distinct voice and context they gave to the works in the exhibition. Collectively they represent a wide array of disciplines across the Williams campus: anthropology, Arabic, art, astronomy, athletics, biology, chemistry, classics, comparative literature, computer science, dance, economics, English, environmental studies, geosciences, history, mathematics, music, philosophy, physics, political science, psychology, romance languages, and theatre.
