The Corcoran School of the Arts and Design at the George Washington University is thrilled to invite you to NEXT 2021: a dynamic, innovative, end-of-year celebration that gives students, faculty, and DC’s art community the opportunity to see the latest in contemporary art, creativity, and scholarship, presented by the graduating class of 2021.
We invite you to join hundreds of visitors to look at works in the fields of theater, dance, music, studio arts, design, art history, interior architecture, museum studies, and more.
This year, for the first time in its history, NEXT will be a hybrid virtual and physical experience, with outdoor installations on GW’s Washington, DC campus that will be on view until May 31, as well as a website where you can see students’ projects — from research papers to series of paintings to radio plays.
At NEXT 2021, you will be entertained and inspired as you observe the many ways this year’s graduating students both define and reflect society through creative works of art and scholarship. As you’ll see, this particular year, the global pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement have profoundly impacted these young artists. The Corcoran is committed to preparing its students for a lifetime of creative practice and study by providing them with the tools and experiences to create innovative works while addressing pressing issues of our time.
Do not miss a moment: stay connected with the Corcoran across Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to receive live updates during NEXT 2021. Also, share your thoughts by posting your own creative work and ideas on social media using #NEXT2021.
