Welcome to The Renaissance Society's Online Archive

As a non-collecting institution, The Society offers a lasting contribution to art history through the documentation of its exhibitions and programs. Over the course of its more than ninety-year history, The Society has explored the development of contemporary art and ideas through every major avant-garde movement.

In the last few years, we have been developing an online archive to provide wider public access to The Society�s rich exhibition history since its founding in 1915. This project is still underway, but already thousands of archival items are available online, including images, essays, publication descriptions, and audio-visual clips of educational programs.

Visitors can search the site in two ways: fast and easy for simple searches, or deep and thorough for advanced. Visitors can view exhibitions chronologically by clicking here.

The Society�s online archive will continue to be expanded with more historical archives and more audio-visual downloads. This project has been supported through generous grants from the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the Gaylord and Dorothy Donnelley Foundation.
