Throughout the history of the Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College, in the first semester of the graduate program, students have been grouped and tasked with curating exhibitions collaboratively. The Marieluise Hessel Collection has been the foundation of the graduate program since its inception, and it is unique in its status as a teaching tool. Typically, these semester-long projects open to the public for a limited period at the end of the Fall Semester. This year, the First Year Curatorial Practice I exhibitions are taking place in the Spring to coincide with the Graduate Thesis exhibitions. The four exhibitions of works drawn from the Marieluise Hessel Collection are on view in two successive rounds in the CCS Bard Galleries.
First Year Curatorial Practice I is a course taught by Amy Zion, Ian Sullivan, and Marcia Acita.
