As part of its sesquicentennial celebration, the Yale Peabody Museum announces the opening of PEABODY2, a satellite gallery located at 1 Broadway in New Haven. The objective of this exhibition is to suggest new ways of thinking about what ethnographic art has to tell us about distant peoples, times, and places. As you view the artwork here, we encourage you to ask: What am I seeing? Why was it made? And how and why did it come to be here? It is our hope that this exhibition will contribute to ongoing discussions about pressing questions of identity, difference, and understanding in society at large.
