About Columbia University's Wallach Gallery
Established in 1986, the Wallach Art Gallery is the University's premier visual arts space. We are a platform for critically acclaimed exhibitions, a dynamic range of programming and publications that contribute to scholarship. The Wallach Art Gallery advances Columbia’s historical, critical and creative engagement with the visual arts. Serving as both a laboratory and a forum, the Wallach Art Gallery offers opportunities for curatorial practice and discourse, while bridging the diverse approaches to the arts at the University with a welcome broader public. We present projects that are organized by graduate students and faculty in the department of art history and archaeology or by other Columbia scholars, focus on the contemporary artists of our campus and communities and offer new scholarship on University special collections.
