Dear *|FNAME|*,

BGC’s fall exhibition SIGHTLINES on Peace, Power & Prestige: Metal Arts in Africa brings leading contemporary artists into conversation with historic African metal arts. Curated by BGC associate professor Drew Thompson, it expands on an exhibition originally organized by the Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art at the University of Florida, curated by Susan Cooksey. Through its dynamic design by internationally acclaimed architects Emanuel Admassu and Jen Wood (AD-WO), the resulting presentation at Bard Graduate Center creates literal and metaphorical ‘sightlines’ among the objects on view.

As a member, you are invited to join us for an exclusive Curator’s Tour on October 3rd, at 5 pm. This will be the only tour offered by curator Drew Thompson, who recently co-curated the award-winning exhibition Benjamin Wigfall and Communications Village at the Dorsky Museum of Art and Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. These in-depth and behind-the-scenes curator’s tours sell out quickly, so be sure to register today. If your membership has expired, this is a great time to renew. Contact us at or (212) 501-3071 to reserve your spot or if you have any questions about your membership.
