Call for Exhibition Proposals in Aronson Galleries for Fall 2015 / Spring 2016

Written by:



Calling all New School faculty, staff and students! Submit your exhibition proposal for the Aronson Galleries during the 2015/16 academic year!

The mission of the Sheila C. Johnson Design Center (SJDC) is to generate an active dialogue on the role of innovative art and design in responding to our contemporary world. Its critical curatorial agenda, provoked by current environmental and social challenges, reflects and advances creative research and pedagogic practices. The exhibition and public programs in its two galleries encourage an interdisciplinary examination of possibility and process, blurring the boundaries between classroom, laboratory and exhibition, and link the university to local and global debates.


What Sorts of Projects Can I Propose?

You may submit proposals for a variety of projects including exhibitions that feature 2-D work and time-based media such as film, video, web design, and performance.

Who Can Apply?

All full and part-time faculty members in good standing, staff, and students of The New School are eligible to apply. Collaborative teams must have a Parsons/TNS faculty or staff member or student as the primary applicant.
