School of Art faculty members Dennis Adams and Walid Raad, and Faculty Emeritus Hans Haacke are currently featured in an exhibition at Kent Fine Art in New York:

Mind the Gap
January 5 - February 25, 2012


Each of the works in "Mind the Gap" operates between and within signs in order to discover, tease out, and make manifest meaning that is neither obvious nor orthodox. The artists presented here respond to our world with particular intelligence and sensitivity to these gaps. It is in their natures to be radical, and each questions and provokes in their own way.

  • Founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper in 1859, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art offers education in art, architecture and engineering, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences.

  • “My feelings, my desires, my hopes, embrace humanity throughout the world,” Peter Cooper proclaimed in a speech in 1853. He looked forward to a time when, “knowledge shall cover the earth as waters cover the great deep.”

  • From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony.

  • Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.
