In the Historical Present: The New School Centennial Exhibition


  • Anna Maria and Stephen Kellen Gallery 2 West 13th Street New York, NY, 10011 United States (map)

Celebrate The New School’s Centennial Year with this exhibition leading up to their 100th Anniversary Festival in October. In the Historical Present looks back and takes stock of this institution’s legacy, attending to the dynamic yet often hidden and dormant possibilities inherent in the school’s many pasts. The exhibition envisions the archive as a site of latent moments that might become scripts and scores for possible futures. Through commissioned artworks, pieces from The New School's art collection and archives, and artist-led engagements and performances, In the Historical Presentinvites viewers to conceive of the institution itself as a script — a set of procedures, methodologies, and discursive practices that unfold over time.
