The Neuberger Museum had a large turnout for its Spring 2020 opening reception, on Feb. 12th, including students, faculty, and citizens from the wider Purchase area. The event, featured live jazz music and light hors d'oeuvres.The purpose of the reception was to display the newest acquisitions and collections to the gallery for this semester.

New to the Neuberger is a gallery dedicated to the work of Pier Paolo Pasolini. Pasolini was more than just a visual artist, he was also a poet and later in his life, a filmmaker. The gallery takes up a majority of the first floor and each part of the gallery showcases a different artistic medium the ‘Subversive Prophet’ used.

Western Union: Small Boats by Issac Julien is also new to the museum this season. The exhibit is in a large, blue gallery, and the art is projected onto three screens.These screens show footage of ships at sea while ocean sounds play throughout the entire room, giving the feel of an immersive experience.

Finally, perfect for black history month, the second floor of the Neuberger has selections from the permanent collection of African Art and Culture on display. This exhibit showcases work from many countries in the continent, including Sudan and East Africa. The artwork shown gives a look into many different aspects of African culture. Some work featured in the gallery includes traditional garments, sculptures, and religious art.

The Neuberger Museum has many new displays and features for Spring 2020 and it is shaping up to be a good season for the museum.
