The MFA Art Practice program at the School of Visual Arts is accepting applications for summer 2018 admission. Art Practice is a low-residency, interdisciplinary graduate program. Artists in the program come together on SVA’s NYC campus for three intensive summer sessions. In the intervening semesters they engage in rich-media online coursework from all over the world. Participants combine personal narrative with critical theory to be active citizen artists.
Chaired by David A. Ross, the program’s faculty includes Angel Abreu, Gustavo and Gaelyn Aguilar, Suzanne Anker, Beth B, Kathy Brew, Lia Gangitano, Laura F. Gibellini, Thyrza Nichols Goodeve, Johan Grimonprez, Isaac Julien, Baseera Khan, Glendalys Medina, Steven Henry Madoff, Iviva Olenick, Ernesto Pujol, Stefan Saffer, Heather Schatz, Sarah G. Sharp, Jovana Stokic, Jacquelyn Strycker, and Robin Winters.
This summer, the Artist-in-Residence will be Emma Sulkowicz, and the 2018 guest lecture series will feature: Coco Fusco, Hilton Als, Isaac Julien, Julie Ault, Tony Oursler, and Edgar Arceneaux.
MFA Art Practice aims to facilitate a global conversation about the arts. Artists in the program engage in research-based practices, and are encouraged to converse and collaborate across subject matters using a combination of traditional and non-traditional media, technologies and techniques.
Ultimately, the program aspires to foster an atmosphere of risk-taking and experimentation, and to create a community of artists and culture producers who look beyond a consensus driven approach to how we define what’s important in contemporary art.
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
