The Artist’s Institute is a research institute and exhibition space for contemporary art in New York City. The Institute dedicates each of its six-month seasons to a single artist whose work becomes the occasion for a series of exhibitions, public programs, seminars, and publications with leading contemporary artists and thinkers.
Each season of The Artist’s Institute considers the connections between an artist’s work and the fields of thought with which it intersects, including literature, science, and philosophy. To this end, the Institute’s intimate gallery invites informal but sustained contact with art and the ideas it generates, contributing equally to artists’ ongoing research and the reception of their work by the public.
The Artist’s Institute was founded in 2010 by Anthony Huberman with the support of Hunter College. In its first three years, the Institute presented seasons featuring Robert Filliou, Jo Baer, Jimmie Durham, Rosemarie Trockel, Haim Steinbach, and Thomas Bayrle. Jenny Jaskey assumed leadership of the Institute in 2013, and followed with seasons dedicated to Lucy McKenzie, Pierre Huyghe, and Carolee Schneemann. In 2016, the Artist’s Institute will move from its current location in the Lower East Side to a townhouse near Hunter College at 65th and Lexington Ave.
