Bard Graduate Center’s spring exhibitions, Shaped by the Loom: Weaving Worlds in the American Southwest, curated by Hadley Jensen (MA ’13, PhD ’18), and Staging the Table in Europe 1500–1800, curated by associate professor Deborah L. Krohn, have each received significant press attention.

Judith Glass wrote in HALI, a lavish international publication that covers the textile arts, called Shaped by the Loom “a sumptuous visual feast.” She continued, “Jensen, together with a group of Bard Graduate Center students, has created an accomplished and exciting show supported by an excellent and exhaustive digital exhibition, [whose] essence is the connection between thinking, making and knowing.”

Meanwhile Camille Okhio wrote in Elle Décor that Staging the Table dissects and celebrates banqueting and dining culture and puts “the artistry of the table on full display” in BGC’s historic townhouse setting. Okhio concluded, “Another show like this has not opened in New York for many years. It’s impossibly special.”
