Located in a building originally built in 1930 for the Meadville Theological Seminary, the Neubauer Collegium for Culture and Society explores novel approaches to complex human questions at the University of Chicago and beyond.
Neubauer Collegium exhibitions present both historical and contemporary art in the context of the Neubauer Collegium’s interdisciplinary research. Visual arts, media, and material culture are central to the intellectual life of the Neubauer Collegium, helping to rethink the meaning of art and the contributions it can make to scholarly inquiry.
Neubauer Collegium exhibitions are curated to meet a range of objectives. Some shows complement research projects supported by the Neubauer Collegium; others combine concerns common to multiple projects within a group exhibition; and still others offer a singular vision and voice that resonates with the alternative, collaborative research mission of the Neubauer Collegium.
