If NYU Skirball is NYU’s biggest classroom, think of this as the syllabus for NYU Skirball Studies 101. Before or after curtain call, come here to find reading lists, media, discussion boards, and suggestions of other shows, books, art, and more.



Follow us down the research rabbit hole: reading lists — context plus points of departure — along with links to media, relevant current events, and discussion questions to take with you after the show, whether you’re talking it out in classrooms or over coffee.

Indefinite Articles

(n.) “Typically, the indefinite article is used to introduce new concepts into a discourse.” (Oxford Living Dictionary)

In other words: riffs on upcoming shows for your delectation, from some of NYU’s best and brightest.

Artist Office Hours

We’ve put together a collection of conversations between NYU Skirball artists and NYU faculty. Some of these are glimpses at ongoing dialogues between long-time collaborators and colleagues; some are first encounters; all are smart, funny, and interesting.
