BFA Seniors - Class of 2019
BFA students organize group shows in the Barney Building exhibition spaces throughout the school year, in response to a competitive "call for proposals" process. The Undergraduate Student Art Organization facilitates a BFA-wide exhibition and series of events in December of each year.
The New York University Curatorial Collaborative
The New York University Curatorial Collaborative began in 2014, initiated by both students and faculty, bringing together artists, senior BFA students from the Studio Art Program, and curators, Masters and PhD candidates of art history from the Institute of Fine Arts, to organize a series of exhibitions, publications and related events. Senior Honor students' works are showcased in five two-person exhibitions with individual curators at NYU’s 80 WSE Galleries and one collectively-curated group exhibition organized in the aptly named Commons Gallery, located in the Barney Building, home to the Studio Art Program.
An experiment in rendering historical barriers and structures increasingly fluid, the NYU Curatorial Collaborative has, from the start, been both institutional and personal, structured and organic, always providing a framework for the unexpected. The collaborative is redefined each year by the students, artists and curators, and the team of faculty and staff that mentor and support them.
