For the first writing practicum in the MFA Art Writing Program, Emmanuel Iduma foregrounds the question of what good writing about art is, and what it can become. He is a 2017 Arts Writers Grant recipient from Creative Capital / The Andy Warhol Foundation.
Weekly seminars culminate in readings and exercises that probe the forms in which writers write, and the milieu in which their writing takes place. In the class, criticism is considered a genre of literature, and inclined towards traditions of writing that privilege lucidity over jargon. Iduma’s goal is to assist students in cultivating their personal voice and to pay attention to the craft of writing, without giving up intellectual rigor.
MFA Art Writing is now accepting applications for the Fall 2018 term. Generous departmental scholarships, as well as other forms of assistance, are available for successful applicants.
