Bard Graduate Center is dedicated to new research in the decorative arts, design history, and material culture. Exhibitions, both in our gallery and online, emerge from classroom teaching and faculty research and often serve as the basis for collaborations with scholars and institutions elsewhere in the city and around the world. These critically acclaimed projects offer visitors cutting-edge perspectives on objects—from the mundane to the extraordinary—and their stories. BGC Gallery publishes award-winning catalogues and offers a broad array of programs to enhance your gallery experience.
