All CCS Bard exhibitions are free and open to the public.

Also on view: WRESTLE, the inaugural exhibition at the Hessel Museum of Art, draws from 40 years of work from the Marieluise Hessel Collection. Instead of providing an overview of Hessel’s collection or a selection of greatest hits, WRESTLE presents provocative juxtapositions that suggest contesting conceptual strategies or the use of similar material approaches to markedly contrasting ends. Many works zero in on questions of psychological struggle, the self divided against itself, and masculinity, sexuality, and violence. Curated by Tom Eccles and Trevor Smith

The Center for Curatorial Studies
The Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College (CCS Bard) is an exhibition and research center dedicated to the study of art and exhibition practices from the 1960s to the present day. The Centers graduate curriculum is specifically designed to deepen students understanding of the intellectual and practical tasks of curating exhibitions of contemporary art, particularly in the complex social and cultural situations of present-day urban arts institutions. In November, 2006, CCS Bard inaugurated the Hessel Museum of Art, a new 17,000 square-foot building for exhibitions curated from the Marieluise Hessel Collection of more than 1,700 contemporary works.
