We Could Be Heroes!
A BFA group show that synthesizes artworks by artists who are empowered through their work, and explore themes of identity and transfiguration in their own practices. Above all it is a show about going places—going up—and the curiosity towards destinations not yet conceived. The show is a charmingly naïve declaration: these artists are heroes of their own stories and futures, even if just for one day.

Organized by Nate Freeman, Daeyoung Kim, Daniel Mock, Maya Pollack, and Paula Rondon.

Including work by BFAs: Carol Civre, Meagan Davis, Nathan Freeman, Eleanor Gollin, Ira Daeyoung Kim, Daniel Mock, David Munoz, Maya Pollack, Paula Rondon, Genevieve Sachs, Rebecca Salmon, Natalie Tung, and Jerry Wilson.

The New York University Curatorial Collaboration

As featured on artnews

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 (NYUCC).  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.  During the 2015 spring semester, six different exhibitions will present this partnership between ten curators and twenty artists.

Listed below are the upcoming exhibitions for Senior Honors Studio students in the 80WSE Project Space, the next products of these collaborative achievements.
