We invite you to honor those impacted by HIV/AIDS and participate in a public contemplation of q***r health and community survival. NYU’s Grey Art Gallery and the King Juan Carlos I of Spain Center (KJCC) are proud to partner with Visual AIDS for Day With(out) Art 2023 by presenting "Everyone I Know Is Sick,” a program of five videos generating connections between HIV and other forms of illness and disability.
•••
The program features newly commissioned work by Dorothy Cheung (Hong Kong), Hiura Fernandes & Lili Nascimento (Brazil), Beau Gomez (Canada/Philippines), Dolissa Medina & Ananias P. Soria (USA), and Kurt Weston (USA).
•••
"Everyone I Know Is Sick" examines how our society excludes disabled and sick people by upholding a false dichotomy of health and sickness. The commissioned artists foreground the knowledge and expertise of disabled and sick people in a world still grappling with multiple ongoing pandemics.
•••
The anthology film will be played on the hour throughout the day in the KJCC auditorium starting at 10 am. A final screening will begin at 3 pm. This will be followed by a moderated panel discussion at 4 pm, featuring:
Blake Paskal, Artist Engagement and Community Programs Manager at Visual AIDS and Artist Educator at the Studio Museum, Luna Luis Ortiz, Film Director, Ballroom Photographer, and Coordinator of Community Health/Prevention Services at Gay Men’s Health Crisis (GMHC), and Kiara St. James, Community Organizer and Co-founder and Executive Director of the New York Transgender Advocacy Group (NYTAG) •••
All screenings are free of charge and open to the public. Seating is first come, first served and capacity is limited.
•••
This program is co-sponsored by CEMS, CLACS, the Department of Spanish and Portuguese, the NYU LGBTQ+ Center, and the Museum Studies Student Organization.

•••
On Saturday, October 28th at 7pm, the NYU All-University Jazz Orchestra will play selected songs in honor of the enduring friendship between Ellington and award-winning author, Professor Ralph Ellison. The granddaughter of Duke Ellington, Mercedes Ellington, with selected faculty will share a few introductory remarks, followed by music, swing dancing, and free dance lessons.

Join NYU Special Collections, writer and organizer Theodore Kerr, and NYU’s Grey Art Gallery for a discussion centering the AIDS-related art installation “Don’t Mourn, Consecrate” by artist Juan González (Born 1942, Cuba; Died 1993, New York City), who died of complications linked to AIDS. One of the first public artworks to engage with the AIDS crisis in the U.S., this installation filled the street-front windows of NYU’s Grey Art Gallery from September to October 1987.
•••
This event will present information about González and the installation, and discussants Carlos Motta (visual artist), Melanie Kress (Senior Curator, Public Art Fund), and Samuel Ernest (doctoral candidate, Yale University) will set “Don’t Mourn, Consecrate” within a larger conversation about HIV/AIDS, illness, public art, identity, and memorialization. The Long Table format will allow audience members to contribute their knowledge and perspectives. What conversations about faith, activism, and mortality become ever more possible through the power of González’s work and the context in which it was made and first exhibited?

📚Internship Awareness Month post!🖼

Hi! My name is Luis, I’m from San José, California, and I’m a sophomore at Tisch studying Dramatic Writing. This past year I have been one of the Grey's undergraduate student interns.

Although my scholastic interests don’t seemingly align with art history, I have really enjoyed bringing my interests to the art I work with. I like to think of each of the works in our gallery as an individual frame in the movie that is the Grey, and the story that the exhibit is telling. Storytelling is more my speed anyway.

Some of my favorite pieces in the Grey’s collection are actually on display right now as a part of "Mostly New." I am particularly drawn to both "Boy on Tire" by Glen Ligon, and "There’s an apple on the table/ it’s dawn/ I die" by Norman Bluhm and Frank O’Hara, for the unique anecdotes behind the creation of the work, and the stories that the pieces tell themselves. To create "Boy on Tire," Ligon, while completing a residency at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, copied pages of Afrocentric coloring books and interacted with kids at local daycare centers to add color. He later enlarged many of the works from this collaboration, including the one that hangs in our gallery today.

As legend has it, Frank O’Hara and Norman Bluhm were hanging out as friends in Bluhm’s Park Avenue studio in 1960, listening to music when Bluhm started to paint on a sheet of paper that O’Hara felt compelled to write on in the spirit of playful collaboration. Their impromptu session resulted in 27 poem-paintings, including what we see in our gallery. These works represent a kind of collaboration and devotion to story that I’ve found at the Grey.

📚Internship Awareness Month post!🖼

Hi! My name is Hafsa, I'm from Brooklyn, and I’m a junior at CAS majoring in Art History and Sociology. I’m currently an undergraduate intern at the Grey Art Gallery and working under the supervision of Leah Sweet, Head of Education and Programs.

Part of the reason why I decided to go into art history is because of my interest in the unique way that visual arts can disseminate information and aid in social movements, which is also why I love looking through the Grey’s collection. The Grey has a lot of works from South Asia that showcase the artistic, philosophical, and social movements in the region during the 1960s and 1970s. Some of my favorite works in their collection are by Somnath H**e, a Bangladeshi born artist who worked mostly in printmaking due to how reproducible and accessible it was to the masses, making it more effective for social critique. Another artist in their collection is Krishen Khanna, whose later artworks addressed a lot of the turmoil and disorder in the Indian Subcontinent post Partition.

1.) Hafsa working at the recent event "From Margin to Center: NYU Alumni in the Arts" in March.

We hope you will join this unique conversation tomorrow, organized by other content, NYU Steinhardt's graduate student curatorial collective, Friday, April 14, 6-8pm, at Einstein Auditorium, 1st Floor Barney Building, 34 Stuyvesant Street!

“Museums Without Stuff” brings together curators and professionals who work in non-collecting museums (and “kunsthalles”) and present contemporary art. The discussion will explore the process of curating contemporary art without a collection, writing art history in real time, and their unique relationships with emerging artists and the public. What are the distinctive challenges they face?

Thank you Washington Square News and Alexa Donovan for writing about our exhibition "Mostly New: Selections from the NYU Art Collection." There are only a few more weeks to see the show, so make sure to stop by the gallery, right on Washington Square East!

Many people may not know that NYU has a permanent collection, but the Grey Art Gallery takes care of thousands of artworks that come from around the world. The Grey is especially proud of our collections of modern Iranian, Indian, and Turkish art, which have been in our collection since 1975. The gallery also collects art that helps to tell the stories of visual culture in downtown NYC, particularly the Greenwich Village neighborhood that has been home to the Grey for all these years.

"Mostly New" closes May 20! You can visit our galleries Monday-Friday, 12-5 pm. We are also open this Saturday, April 15, 12-5 pm, and Saturday, May 20 for the last day of the show.

Then, the Grey will prepare for its next big chapter in a new location, 18 Cooper Square! Our summer and fall will be dedicated to moving and setting up our new space so that we will be ready to greet you all in the spring of 2024.

Stop in to see some great art while you still can!

Patterns and Power: A Discussion on Craft and Labor in Art
April 19, 6 pm
Silver Center, NYU, Room 301 (enter at 32 Waverly Place) and via Zoom

Focusing on two NYC artists who approach decoration from a political mindset, this discussion will explore relationships between craft, pattern, and labor, especially as a means to question power structures. Joyce Kozloff, a major figure in the Pattern and Decoration and Feminist art movements, employs mapping and other visual traditions to rethink history and culture. Artist and writer Sarah Zapata creates sculptures, installations and performances with techniques including hand weaving and sewing to examine themes such as gender, identity, and colonialism. Both work with intricate, handmade processes, troubling the history of craft as “women’s work.”

Moderated by Catherine Quan Damman, Linda Nochlin Visiting Assistant Professor, Institute of Fine Arts, NYU.

Co-sponsored by the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality at NYU; the Institute of Fine Arts, NYU; and the Department of Art History, College of Arts & Science, NYU.

Register for in-person or virtual attendance via Zoom at the link in our bio! For in-person attendance without an active NYU ID card, please RSVP via our contact form by April 18.

📚Internship Awareness Month post!🖼

My name is Bella Aguilar-Rosil (she/they), and I am one of the graduate interns working at the Grey Art Gallery. I am currently a second-year graduate student, and will be receiving my M.A. in Museum Studies this May. I am originally from Los Angeles, California, and received my B.A. in Chicanx and Central American Studies from the University of California, Los Angeles. I am currently working under Leah Sweet, Head of Education and Programs, in education and public programs at the Grey.

Prior to coming to the Grey, I worked as a curatorial fellow at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. Part of my duties involved writing loan letters to various institutions, including the Grey, asking to borrow works for the exhibition “Alex Katz: Gathering.” I am also currently a curatorial intern at the Whitney Museum of American Art, where I assisted with the exhibition “no existe un mundo poshuracán: Puerto Rican Art in the Wake of Hurricane Maria.” I am interested in Latinx and Latin American art, and my favorite artist in NYU’s art collection is Joaquin Torres-Garcia. Outside of work, I enjoy going to museums, reading horror novels, and playing video games.

📚Internship Awareness Month Post!🖼

Hi! I’m Chloë Courtney, a PhD student at NYU’s Institute of Fine Arts, and lucky enough to be the 2022-2023 Graduate Curatorial Assistant at NYU’s Grey Art Gallery.

While most curatorial assistant positions are full-time, the GCA position is designed to accommodate graduate students. Three days a week, I work at the Grey, conducting research for forthcoming publications and exhibitions, drafting exhibition labels, and leading tours. I love the collaborative nature of this work! My off-days are dedicated to my own research, which investigates how craft, textiles, and indigeneity have influenced the contemporary art of the Americas.

My supervisors at the Grey recently gave me the flexibility to travel to Oaxaca, where I conducted interviews with ceramicists Adrián Martínez Alarzón and Ana María Alarzón Hernández about their 2015 collaboration with Mexican conceptual artist Mariana Castillo Deball. Their workshop Taller Coatlicue worked with Castillo Deball to produce 7 ceramic towers akin to the one depicted here. Stay tuned for eventual publications on this subject!

Working at the Grey has exposed me to artworks that similarly invoke traditional craft techniques in the Americas. For example, I love how Richard Kalina’s striped painting Luquillo evokes the folds of a heavy blanket. Kalina’s work was part of the Grey’s 2008 exhibition, New York Cool: Painting and Sculpture from the NYU Art Collection.
