Neubauer Collegium Exhibitions present both historical and contemporary art in the context of the Neubauer Collegium’s interdisciplinary research. Visual arts, media, and material culture are central to the intellectual life of the Neubauer Collegium, helping to rethink the meaning of art and the contributions it can make to scholarly inquiry.
Neubauer Collegium Exhibitions are curated to meet a range of objectives. Some shows complement research projects supported by the Neubauer Collegium; others combine concerns common to multiple projects within a group exhibition; and still others offer a singular vision and voice that resonates with the alternative, collaborative research mission of the Neubauer Collegium.
“The work we show varies radically in topic and scope from exhibition to exhibition, but it all demonstrates artistic practice as a vital form of humanistic research,” says Neubauer Collegium Exhibitions Curator Jacob Proctor. “You may experience meticulously researched experimental filmmaking or a body of work by a historical character who is in fact a contemporary artistic construction. But what you will always find is a creative, alternative space that speaks to the flexibility that an exhibition gallery can have not only at a research university, but within a major metropolitan center.”
