Pratt Shows kicks off in February with a series of public events celebrating Pratt Institute’s graduating classes. At exhibitions, performances, presentations, readings, screenings, and installations, all are invited to discover the exciting work that reflects the culmination of these students’ time at Pratt. Around 1,300 students will be represented from more than 30 academic fields within architecture, art, design, information, and the liberal arts and sciences.
This annual showcase continues through May at venues in both Brooklyn and Manhattan, with each week of Pratt Shows offering new encounters with the bold ideas formed through the students’ years of research, creative inquiry, collaboration, and investigation. The Mondays at Pratt component of Pratt Shows welcomes the public to the Brooklyn campus every Monday night for opening receptions to debut new exhibitions and presentations from Fine Arts and Photography MFA and BFA students. Elsewhere around the city, students will have opportunities to present their work with major external partners such as NYCxDESIGN and International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF).
All events are free and open to the public unless otherwise noted. For a full listing of happenings, visit the dedicated Pratt Shows microsite. And while you’re out exploring, tag #prattshows2020 to share your experience.
