Highlights from the NYU Grey Art Gallery’s Collection of Modern Asian and Middle Eastern Art

Join the NYU Grey Art Gallery’s Lynn Gumpert, Director, and Michèle Wong (STEINHARDT ’80), Associate Director | Head of Exhibitions and Collections, in a discussion and virtual tour of the highlights of NYU’s unparalleled and unique Abby Weed Grey Collection of Modern Asian and Middle Eastern Art. Donated to NYU in 1974 by art collector and patron Abby Weed Grey, the collection includes some of the largest institutional holdings of Iranian, Indian, and Turkish modern art outside those countries. At a time when few Americans were attuned to contemporary art from the Middle East and Asia, Grey assembled a substantial collection of some 700 works.
