At Bard Graduate Center, we miss sharing with you in person our passion for learning about human history through direct study of objects, from the luxurious to the quotidian. Although our gallery is closed and our lectures, symposia, discussions, and workshops are necessarily postponed, we realized we could still share that passion by examining the objects we have at hand.

Please check out our new video series, One More Thing, in which one person discusses one object for one minute. Follow us on Instagram at @bardgradcenter to get in on the fun.

One More Thing: Soon Kai Poh
"The work of a conservator often involves the reimagination of things, having to envision the history of things in order to care for them into the future. Being able to do so with skill and humility is the conservator’s craft.” – Soon Kai Poh, Conservation as a Human Science Fellow Learn More Button
