Student News: Daniel Palmer Co-Cuartes “Unorthodox” at the Jewish Museum

Daniel Palmer, a PhD candidate at the Graduate Center and the Leon Levy Assistant Curator at the Jewish Museum has co-organized Unorthodox, a large-scale group exhibition featuring over 50 contemporary artists from around the world whose practices mix forms and genres without concern for artistic conventions.

Curated by Palmer along with Jens Hoffmann, the museum’s Deputy Director of Exhibitions and Public Programs, and Assistant Curator Kelly Taxter, the exhibition highlights the importance of iconoclasm and art’s key role in breaking rules and traditions. Numerous works that examine social and political values, religion and humanism, trauma, and identity explore the relationship between the human figure and the modern creative process.

In conjunction with the exhibition, the Museum will host a conversation between GC professor Claire and artist Joshua Decter, Thursday, 11/12.
