Event description

Description

After a sold-out spring edition, our fall course for the general public will open our extensive Study Collection for the very first time. Bard Graduate Center’s History of Materials and Making is a five-week object handling course taught by our world-renowned faculty and alumni. Each session will focus on a different material in the Object Lab, allowing participants to discover histories of materials, making, and production through objects in our collection.

The purpose of the Bard Graduate Center Study Collection is to support pedagogy by providing hands-on, close examination of objects as part of the classroom experience and includes a number of rare, unusual, and delicate objects in a range of materials.
