Neuberger Museum of Art SPACE|42
Neuberger Museum of Art SPACE|42 is a SUNY collaboration between Purchase College and the School of Optometry to create a contemporary art space in the heart of New York City.
Art is about ways of thinking about vision and viewing, as are the missions of the two SUNY colleges: Optometry, a college that teaches about eye care, and Purchase, a college that teaches about the arts.
The artist projects created in and for Neuberger Museum of Art SPACE|42 are intended to spark community engagement and dialogue, and be accessible to all, while expanding on the vision of our founder, Roy R. Neuberger, to support and encourage the work of living artists.
The Neuberger is a center of teaching and learning for all states of life.

José Parlá: No Space / Non Place
December 15, 2017-April 28, 2018
The Neuberger Museum of Art is delighted to present José Parlá: No Space / Non Place, a newly commissioned public project for NEU SPACE|42. Parlá is known for his paintings and sculptural works that examine the concept of place. Using the backdrop of world cities, the work explores the accumulated history of urban environments, capturing the essence of a place at the brief moment between past and future. In this group of new paintings Parlá abandons the concept of a specific place to explore a generic urbanism reflecting the turbulence of political situations around the world.
José Parlá: No Space / Non Place is organized by the Neuberger Museum of Art, Purchase College, SUNY, and curated by Avis Larson, Assistant Curator. Generous support for this project is provided by the Friends of the Neuberger Museum of Art and by the Purchase College Foundation.
