Exhibitions & Events
Fales regularly presents exhibitions in the Tracey/Barry Gallery, on the third floor of Bobst Library. Exhibitions are free and open to the public. Gallery hours are 10:00 to 5:30, Monday to Friday.
We also host ongoing lectures and panels, which are free and open to the public.
Not only this, but 'New language beckons us'
This exhibition is composed of archival objects from the Fales Library's Downtown Collection coupled with newly commissioned texts from contemporary artists and writers. Each text corresponds to a figure or object from the collection and highlights interpersonal affinities and adjacencies, influences and recollections. These couplings give voice to still-present narratives and discourses orbiting the intersection of art and HIV/AIDS—a theme that speaks to Visual AIDS' ongoing mission: to serve as an advocate for artists with AIDS and to recognize art as a tool for education and activism in the fight against AIDS.

For the past five years the Fales Library, NYU's Department of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health, along with Clark Wolf of Clark Wolf Company, Inc. have planned a series of public, scholarly panels and events highlighting current topics in food. These highly popular programs, ranging from such topics as "water," to the ethics of gourmet dining, to the "Farm Bill," are viewable here.
They have become important pedagogical tools and are used in classrooms to stimulate discussions about food.
