Welcome to the Gallatin Galleries. Our goal is to engage with contemporary social issues through a broad spectrum of contemporary art, documents and events. The Galleries opened in March 2009 as part of the  Gallatin School of Individualized Study at NYU.

The Gallatin Galleries opened in Spring 2009 and has since hosted curated shows exploring contemporary ideas in a variety of media, exhibitions of student work, and, faculty projects. With three floors in the Gallatin building and a ground floor space with windows onto Washington Place, the gallery is a site of conversation within Gallatin School of Individualized Study at NYU and with the larger community. The gallery continually pushes to seek out new ways of understanding contemporary issues through the lens of art by student and professional artists.
