The Art Students League lists over seventy instructors on its regular season roster with dozens of additional visiting artists leading workshops throughout the year. The Instructors Exhibition, its inaugural show every season, consists of works selected by instructors themselves. At the league, each teaching artist embodies a unique curriculum. “The teacher is allowed the same independence as the student,” painter Allen Tucker observed about the school back in 1925. “[H]e is given a studio and in that studio is master without interference of any kind, free entirely as to his aims and his methods.” This exhibition reveals, in that sense, the array of media, styles, and aesthetic viewpoints available for study—not to mention some exceptional art.
