Welcome to Bard Graduate Center Gallery.

We invite you to visit our Gallery that organizes exhibitions featuring objects and related works of art from cultures throughout the world. Dedicated to new research in the decorative arts, design history and material culture, our exhibitions offer visitors opportunities to appreciate how historical and contemporary things, from the simplest everyday objects to the most extraordinary creations were made, used, collected, and displayed. Film and new media interactives enrich the visitor experience in the Gallery, and are also available online.

Focus Projects are an important part of our exhibition program. Curated by our faculty or postdoctoral fellows they promote experimentation in display, interpretation and the use of digital media. Curators, students, designers, and media specialists work collaboratively on the realization of these exhibitions, many of which are cross-disciplinary.

Our exhibitions are accompanied by fully-illustrated books and a broad array of public programs.

On this website you will find information about current, upcoming, and past exhibitions, Focus Projects, Gallery publications, public programs and tools to help you plan your visit.
