​After a sold-out spring edition, our fall course for the general public will be a hands-on exploration of objects in our intimate Object Lab. Taught by our world-renowned faculty and alumni, participants will discover the history of materials, making, and production.

Bard Graduate Center is a graduate research institute and intellectual community devoted to studying the cultural histories of the material world. Our programs for the scholarly and general public, along with our critically acclaimed exhibitions, make BGC a major venue for advanced discussion of design, decorative arts and material culture.
