Object of the Month is where Bard Graduate Center connects with its public online. Whether showcasing a particular object from an exhibition, or providing a platform for individuals to think with an object of their choice, the combination of intensive investigation of the object and extensive examination of its context represents the pedagogy at work in the gallery as in the classroom. Commentaries are written by curators, professors, students, or our Teen Scholars. The visitor is able to look very closely at the object, sometimes even more closely than is possible in the gallery itself, while being guided through its nature and history.
