Archipelago is an arts-and-research institute devoted to spirituality, thinking, and healing. At a constellation of sites across the globe, we host exhibitions, artists’ residencies, and a growing research library.

Our inaugural site is in Germantown, NY, overlooking the Hudson River. The river meanders between wide patches with low sloping banks and narrow, fjord-like passages constrained by sharp highlands. It famously runs in two directions, following high and low tides rushing in and out from the Atlantic. This dramatic geological sweep was the focal point of the nineteenth-century Hudson River School. In their ethereal landscape paintings, truth-seeking and spiritual reflection were joined through a sustained engagement with nature. In response to over a century of industrialization, the valley became a major site of the new environmental movement in the 1960s. Archipelago aims to bring together a capacious approach to the arts with sustained attention towards our place in nature.
