NEU Student Voices
The NEU Student Voices blog features weekly posts by the Neuberger Museum’s communications intern.
Hear what’s happening at the NEU from the perspective of a Purchase College student.
As the semester wraps up, I took some time to reflect back on this not-so-normal year of virtual classes and lots of ZOOM time and to look ahead at what might be coming next.
I had the opportunity to ask Purchase alumna Chelsea Spengemann ’11 (MA Art History) some questions about how her experiences as a graduate student opened the door for her to curate an exhibition for the Neuberger Museum of Art and paved the way to her current career.
This past Thursday I had the chance to join other Purchase students for an online discussion with artist Barbara Ségal and Purchase College professor of art history Paul Kaplan. The Zoom discussion was led by Rebecca (Rem) Ribeiro, one of the M+ cohort students responsible for organizing the Concentrated Power project highlighting Ségal’s sculpture, Dash, that is on view now in the Open Classroom at the Neuberger Museum of Art.
Last week I had the opportunity to be one of the first students to walk back through the museum’s doors after over a year of the building being closed to the public. As a remote student, being back on campus felt surreal, but as soon as I walked back through the exhibits at the Neuberger I felt like I was back home as a campus resident once again.
