CCS Bard/Art+Culture Projects

In Summer 2018, the Hessel Museum of Art at Bard College will present a major exhibition and publication examining the legacies of legendary art dealers Pat Hearn and Colin de Land. The archives of their respective galleries were acquired by the Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College (CCS Bard) in 2012 and has been a focus of research for the graduate program, investigating the artwork, events, and public and private programs produced by these galleries that were a vital part of the 1990s in New York. De Land and Hearn were also among the founders of The Armory Show in 1994.

Working with artists who were associated with de Land's American Fine Arts, Co. and Pat Hearn Gallery, CCS Bard and Art+Culture Projects have partnered to present specially commissioned limited editions to support this major exhibition. Participating artists include George Condo, Moyra Davey, Mark Dion, Jeff Elrod, Mary Heilmann, Jacqueline Humphries, Jutta Koether, Mariko Mori, Philip Taaffe, and John Waters, with more to be announced. The prints will be available to view and purchase online at and in person at The Armory Show, Pier 92 entrance. Art+Culture Projects is committed to nurturing curatorial excellence across the country through the production and sale of museum-quality limited editions.
