This spring, CCS Bard presents thirteen exhibitions and projects featuring more than forty emerging and established artists organized by the graduating class of the master of arts curatorial studies program. On view April 3 through May 30, 2021, each project was developed over a period of study that was splintered by the events of the past year, and implicitly bear some trace of this moment. Comprising solo and group exhibitions, digital initiatives, and performance, the projects range in methods and subject matter, from mourning, environmental precarity, isolation, and decentralized learning, to accessibility and healing.

The thesis exhibition is a core component of CCS Bard’s graduate program, which provides each graduating student the opportunity to mine the Marieluise Hessel Collection of Contemporary Art, CCS Bard’s foundational collection of more than 3,000 objects; conduct original research into artists’ practices, guided by research in CCS Bard’s extensive archives; and mount individual exhibitions and projects within the Hessel Museum of Art and CCS Bard Galleries. Past student-curated exhibitions have served as springboards for artists in the earliest stages of their careers and as the basis for ongoing curatorial investigations by CCS Bard graduates at other leading museums, galleries, and arts organizations around the world.

Also on view April 3–May 16:
