The New York University Curatorial Collaboration

The Institute of Fine Arts and the Steinhardt School’s Department of Art are pleased to announce the launch of the New York University Curatorial Collaboration. During the 2015 spring semester, six different exhibitions will present the partnership between ten curators and twenty artists. The project began with a simple question: how to connect the uptown and downtown NYU art worlds?

Throughout fall 2014, the curators and artists met frequently during studio visits and were faced with many unprecedented opportunities and challenges. The following upcoming exhibitions are the product of their collaborative achievements.
