The Exhibitions department develops, organizes, implements, and executes all aspects relating to the presentation of exhibitions and displays at the Schwarzman Building (SASB) and the Library for the Performing Arts (LPA). Exhibitions are the most direct reflection of the breadth of NYPL’s collections and provide the only means by which the public, outside of scholars and writers, can gain access to its extraordinary holdings. By their very nature, exhibitions tell stories, serve as catalysts for ideas, and encourage new ways of thinking and learning. While providing insights into the collections, exhibitions serve to confirm NYPL’s ability to make accessible the most important intellectual, historic, literary, and artistic ideas created.
Under the direct supervision of the Associate Director for Exhibitions, the Curatorial Associate is responsible for participating in the development and planning of exhibitions within the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building and the Library for the Performing Arts.
