An integral part of the John B. Hurford '60 Center for the Arts and Humanities, the Cantor Fitzgerald Gallery (CFG) is the principal venue for the Haverford College Exhibitions Program.
February 15-April 11, 2021: Notes for Tomorrow features artworks from around the world, brought together to reflect on a new global reality ushered in by the COVID-19 pandemic. With the ever-present backdrop of the crisis, Independent Curators International (ICI) turned to 30 curators from 25 countries to question and reassess values and relevance in contemporary culture, and to share an artwork they believe is vital to be seen today.
As many around the world are experiencing social distancing and orders to stay at home, the Cantor Fitzgerald Gallery is joining Independent Curators International (ICI) and over 30 art spaces around the world in sharing do it (home). A version of do it envisioned by Obrist in 1995, do it (home) assembles a set of artists instructions that can easily be realized in one’s own home.
October 20, 2020, 4:30pm EST (VIRTUAL EVENT) Let Us Love You as You Are imagines the potential of exhibitions as care-taking spaces. This extension of the group exhibition An Alarming Specificity, which was originally set to open in the midst of a pandemic, takes up the mantle of creating spaces for bodies too often treated as marginal.

September 22–November 13, 2020: Faced with time during the COVID-19 lockdown and a campus blossoming from winter to spring and spring to fall, Ying Li did what any artist would do and went to work, painting each day en plein air. The result captures the abstract beauty of Li’s creative output from March – August 2020.
Thursday, September 24 2020: Join the Hurford Center for the Arts and Humanities, Twelve Gates Arts, and the Philadelphia chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-Philadelphia) for a Uyghur and Urdu Poetry Reading (5-6pm est) followed by a Discussion and Q&A (6-6:30pm est).
January 24 – March 6, 2020: The Bicentennial in Philadelphia laid bare some of the most pressing questions of America’s national identity. Five Haverford and Bryn Mawr College students collaborated with poet Thomas Devaney and Greenhouse Media to explore this surreal moment in history through an experimental documentary film. Bicentennial City continues that project as an interactive installation with multi-channel projections, sculptures, and Bicentennial ephemera, seeking to explore the many roles myth and memory play in the psyche of a city.
