Cultural Sciences Partners

The New York Cultural Sciences Campus was designed to link the methodological pluralism of the BGC's material focus to the entire spectrum of these traces: from objects of intentional aesthetic value (Metropolitan Museum of Art) through objects of keen historical value (New-York Historical Society) through objects of utilitarian function (American Museum of Natural History). Contact with curators and objects in these collections presents to students and faculty an encyclopedic framework in which to study the material past. We have also, in this past year, helped establish a curator position in decorative arts at The Frick Collection. The curator will regularly teach at the BGC.

The Global Cultural Sciences Campus gives our students the opportunity to work with and learn from professors and students at other vibrant research and graduate centers, including the Royal College of Art/Victoria & Albert Museum in London, Art History Faculty at the Humboldt University in Berlin, and  Institut national d'histoire de l'art in Paris.
