Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art

The Newhouse Center has been an incubator for bold and innovative artists developing new work since the 1970’s, promoting inquiry and advancing scholarship.

The largest and oldest contemporary art gallery on Staten Island, the Newhouse Center hosts multiple exhibitions per year in 15,000 feet of exhibition space, in addition to public art installations spread out across our 83 acre campus. Artist talks, lectures, screenings, workshops and tours activate our community.  We present a wide range of voices and artistic practices, and are committed to equity and inclusion in our exhibitions and programs. The Newhouse Center has grown from a pioneering alternative space to a venue for major solo and group exhibitions that include a mix of local and international work.
