what ELSE can we do?
We’re in the world and its chaos:
we can change the way we think about things
we can imagine
we can find new ways of doing and being
we can see other perspectives
we can consider
we can think and make and discuss critically
we can question
we can fail and fail better
we can privilege ideas
we can dream
we can succeed
Art is subversive because it changes what and how we think and act; because doing what you want and what’s important to you is resistance; because showing up is the best we can do.
Get unschooled — join Transart.
Advanced Standing MFA — apply December 1st for January start, fast-track to our low-residency Studio PhD. Scholarships are available.
Our international, flexible MFA understands each student (not any “educator”) is the expert on where praxis might lead. Residencies in Berlin and New York with year-long one-on-one advisements.
Transart’s unique Studio PhD — changing how artists think, speak, and write about their work — recognizes practice as research; acknowledging imagination, creative thinking, problem-solving, and making/social action as vital forms of knowledge. By thinking differently, we act differently.
At the Summer Academy typically mid-career artists/curators get a creative surge; revitalize their practice, gain fresh perspectives; strike out in new directions. Join graduate/doctoral workshops, lectures, critiques, exhibitions, events. We help design self-study programs and advise on MFA or PhD proposals.
Transartists exhibit, publish, perform and discuss with their international community.
Rolling admissions for all are now open.
As arts communities around the world experience a time of challenge and change, accessible, independent reporting on these developments is more important than ever.
