Beginning on April 8, the Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College (CCS Bard) presents 15 exhibitions curated by second-year students in its graduate program, organized as part of the requirements for the master of arts degree. Conceived and organized over 15 months, the exhibitions present bold, original arguments, and take the form of focused solo exhibitions, thematic group shows, and even ambitious reconsiderations of earlier movements or artistic tendencies. Research for student exhibitions was often anchored in CCS' unique and extensive Library and Archives, and several shows include work from the Marieluise Hessel Collection.
