History / Biographical Note
Biographical / Historical
The Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Art Gallery advances Columbia University'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. They present projects that are organized by graduate students and faculty in Art History & Archaeology or by other Columbia scholars; focus on the contemporary artists of our campus and communities; offer new scholarship on University special collections. Established in 1986, The Wallach Art Gallery is the University's premier visual arts space. They are a platform for critically acclaimed exhibitions, a dynamic range of programming, and publications that contribute to scholarship. The Wallach Art Gallery also animates other university spaces as opportunity arises. They operate in close relationship to the Department of Art History and Archaeology, School of the Arts, and the university Libraries, particularly Avery Architectural and Fine Arts Library.
