GAGOSIAN + NXTHVN X 3
Gagosian is supporting NXTHVN with three new initiatives. The gallery will endow the NXTHVN Apprenticeship Program; launch a professional development program for NXTHVN Fellows, featuring roundtable discussions and studio visits with Gagosian staff; and offer sales support to Pleading Freedom, a fundraising exhibition at the NXTHVN Gallery in New Haven.
NXTHVN is a new national arts model established by Titus Kaphar with cofounder and chairman of the board Jason Price and cofounder Jonathan Brand, which empowers artists and curators of color through education and access. Its unique curriculum emphasizes intergenerational mentorship, professional development, and cross-sector collaboration. NXTHVN connects students from local high schools, early-career artists, and creative professionals with the resources and networks that are vital to their success.
