  • The Vera List Center at The New School is a singular force in the critical investigation of art and politics. Named in honor of and synonymous with the legacy of philanthropist and arts advocate Vera G. List, the center has been dedicated to rigorously probing the world's most crucial sociopolitical issues since its inception in 1992.

    Through compelling public programs, exhibitions, curriculum, art and research projects, performances, and prizes and awards, the center continues to galvanize discourse within The New School, in New York City and around the world. It plays an essential role in the university, engaging students in critical discourses and curatorial processes and providing them with unique opportunities through art and politics–focused awards and research endeavors. To this day, the Vera List Center (VLC) is the only university-based arts institution exclusively dedicated to investigating pressing world concerns.

    The Vera List Center for Art and Politics’ innovative and transformative programming is made possible through external support. Help us by making a tax-deductible contribution through the VLC’s academic home, The New School, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit university. Visit the center's website, veralistcenter.org, for detailed information on how to get involved.
