Applications are now open for the MFA Visual Arts and Sound Art Programs at Columbia University School of the Arts. Both attract emerging artists of unusual promise from around the world who join a vibrant community, working alongside an exceptional faculty at a world-renowned research institution in the global center that is New York City.
The Visual Arts Program is interdisciplinary and offers an MFA degree in Visual Arts rather than in one specific medium. The two-year studio program, taught by internationally celebrated artists, allows students to pursue drawing, installation, painting, performance, photography, printmaking, sculpture, and video.
The MFA Sound Art Program, offered in association with the Visual Arts MFA Program, the Department of Music, and the Computer Music Center, allows students the opportunity to pursue creative work in a variety of genres and focus on the integration of sound with other media.
Visual Arts faculty include Gregory Amenoff, Matthew Buckingham (Chair), Susanna Coffey, Jon Kessler, Nicola López, Miya Masaoka, Leeza Meksin, Aliza Nisenbaum, Shelly Silver, Sable Elyse Smith, Sarah Sze, Rirkrit Tiravanija, and Tomas Vu-Daniel.
Sound Art faculty include Miya Masaoka (Director), Seth Cluett (Assistant Director), Brad Garton, Ben Holtzman, and Dave Sulzer.
Registration is now open for the upcoming information sessions on Sunday, November 15.
