Opening Reception: Thursday, December 7, 5pm - 7pm

From the Collection: First Year Curatorial Practice 2023 comprises three exhibitions curated in groups by the M.A. candidates of the Class of 2025. Works drawn from the Marieluise Hessel Collection make up each of these shows, which unfold side by side in the inner CCS Bard Galleries, converted this year into one unifying space.

The first show, titled [      ], brings together artworks that explore artistic responses to the notion of containment: the various limits that shape material and emotional states. Next, Kin to these tremors focuses on the precariousness of human life, asking how agency, resistance, and dignity might look when bodies undergo strain or sickness, decay or even death. Exploring the various methods of representation that artists employ to navigate ongoing histories of marginalization, Hold the Applause investigates the artistic strategy of staging—and considers its capacity to resist societal narratives built around power and visibility.

Featured artists include Vito Acconci, Diedrick Brackens, Martin Creed, Lucky DeBellevue, Donna Dennis, VALIE EXPORT, Samuel Fosso, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Vlatka Horvat, Maria Lassnig, Deana Lawson, An-My Lê, Rodney McMillian, Bruce Nauman, Sondra Perry, Adam Putnam, Robert Ryman, Lise Sarfati, Kiki Smith, Jo Spence, Salman Toor, Rosemarie Trockel, and Kara Walker.
