Bortolami, James Cohan, kaufmann repetto, Anton Kern, Andrew Kreps, and kurimanzutto are pleased to present the inaugural exhibition at their new shared space, The Campus, in Claverack, NY. Embracing a collaborative model, the galleries have turned an abandoned former school building into a platform for dynamic cultural exchange. Organized by Timo Kappeller, the inaugural exhibition will run from June 29 through October 27, 2024.

Vacant since the ‘90s, the 78,000-square-foot building of the Ockawamick School, built in 1951 and largely unrenovated, has been ripe for reanimation. Colorfully-painted classrooms, mid-century architectural details, and generous natural lighting create a compelling context for artists to engage with the space, the original purpose of the structure, and one another.

In recent years, a reconsideration of values has led many artists toward the long-established creative community of Upstate New York. The Campus embraces this environment of spirited exchange with a sweeping exhibition that fills 40 rooms and the surrounding grounds with artwork. Within each room, thoughtful groupings offer moments of focused dialogue amongst diverse voices from within and beyond the six gallery programs.

In the spirit of collaboration, The Campus is partnering with NXTHVN’s Cohort 05 Studio and Curatorial Fellows. Founded by Titus Kaphar and Jason Price, NXTHVN’s annual fellowship works to mentor and uplift underrepresented artists and curators. The exhibition will feature the work of Studio Fellows Adrian Armstrong, Alexandria Couch, Eric Hart Jr., Fidelis Joseph, Jamaal Peterman, Eugene Mackie, and Alex Puz, organized by Curatorial Fellows Marquita Flowers and Clare Patrick.
