Forty-one artists from around the globe return to their alma mater for NYU Kimmel Galleries’ first annual all alumni artist exhibition Convergence 2017.  Shown side by side on the university walls, the artists' works are as diverse in subject matter as they are in medium. The resulting exhibition is an explosion of character and color, which shines in remarkable harmony.

The heterogenic group finds common grounds in the confidence emanating from the works and in their ability to explore their creative potential in a personal way. Convergence 2017 is a celebration of the diversity of the creative mind.  Exhibition organized by Kimmel Galleries with special thanks to Gallery Assistants Ivan Martinez and Navneet Jain.
