Hunter Galleries

Main campus gallery: (212) 772-4991

The Hunter College Art Galleries, comprised of the Bertha and Karl Leubsdorf Gallery, The 205 Hudson Gallery, and The Artist’s Institute are committed to a dynamic exhibition program that expands the classroom experience of undergraduate learning across the college. The Galleries are also integral to the graduate programs in Art and Art History, affording students the opportunity to work hands-on with faculty, guest curators, and gallery staff to develop exhibitions that encourage critical thinking, original research, and direct contact with both historical and contemporary art.

The Bertha and Karl Leubsdorf Gallery is located in the West Building of the main campus at 68th Street and Lexington Avenue and focuses on historical and scholarly exhibitions developed by faculty, students, and alumni.

The 205 Hudson Gallery is a new street level exhibition space, housed in the Studio MFA program building in Tribeca. 205 Hudson is dedicated to engaging contemporary art through diverse exhibitions, performance events, and programming, including exhibitions of graduating MFA students.

The Artist’s Institute, located on the Lower East Side, was founded in 2010 by Hunter College and curator Anthony Huberman. The Artist’s Institute is an experimental platform for thinking about art in the present moment, with an annual program that is divided into two six-month seasons, each of which is dedicated to the work of a single artist.

Located in the Silberman School of Social Work Building at 119th Street, The Hunter College East Harlem Art Gallery is a space for initiating partnerships between different departments and academic disciplines. The gallery presents exhibitions and public events that foster academic collaboration at Hunter College while addressing subjects relevant to the East Harlem community.
