The Ezra & Cecile Zilkha Gallery is part of Wesleyan University’s Center for the Arts, a complex of iconic modern buildings designed by Kevin Roche-John Dinkeloo and Associates (1973).

The gallery is dedicated to presenting groundbreaking solo and group exhibitions and installations that explore contemporary issues, often through an interdisciplinary lens. Site specific projects that take advantage of the gallery’s unique and majestic space have also been featured. In the 1980s, Zilkha worked with artists Jessica Stockholder, Kiki Smith, Franz Erhard Walther, Cindy Sherman, and Daniel Buren, in the 1990s with Mary Kelly, Astrid Klein, Glenn Ligon, Tony Feher, Fred Sandback, and Beverly Semmes, and in recent years with Ralph Lemon, Nancy Spero, Alvin Lucier, Clarissa Tossin, Kahlil Robert Irving, and Brendan Fernandes.

The mission of Wesleyan University’s Center for the Arts, the umbrella organization for Zilkha Gallery, is to catalyze people’s creativity by engaging them in the dynamic work of artists from around the globe who challenge and inspire.  We do this in the belief that art is an essential lens through which to see and know the world, fundamental to a vital liberal arts education for all Wesleyan students as well a vibrant, engaged campus and community for learners of all ages.
