Purchase College would like to congratulate Jon Kessler ’80, Tommy Hartung ’04, and Tal Beery MFA ’17, member of Occupy Museums, for their participation in the 2017 Whitney Biennial. We’re proud of their work and their important contributions.

Speaking about their practices, A+D director Steve Lam said “the artworld is still a place in which we can play, resist, and imagine future just worlds. Projects by Jon, Tommy, and Occupy Museums are exactly what we need. We need to celebrate that spirit of provocation and energy. I’m proud that they are part of our academic and creative community.”
