Join conservation technician Yi Bin Liang for an in-depth exploration of 18th-century methods and techniques of book binding in a close examination of works on view in the special exhibition Dare to Know: Prints and Drawings in the Age of Enlightenment.


Featuring approximately 150 works on paper and other related objects, Dare to Know explores how the graphic arts inspired, shaped, and gave immediacy to new ideas in the Enlightenment era by encouraging individuals to follow their own reason when seeking to know more. An illustrated catalogue with 26 thematic essays—an A to Z exploration of the Enlightenment quest for understanding and change—accompanies the exhibition.


Led by:

Yi Bin Liang, Conservation Technician, Straus Center for Conservation and Technical Studies
