The MPS Graduate Fashion Photography department is an intensive one-year degree program offering practicing photographers the opportunity to advance their bodies of work under the guidance of photographers, editors, creative directors and digital retouchers working at the forefront of fashion today, and in partnership with the CFDA ‘Incubators’ program.
Bridging the gap between “high” and “low” culture, commercial and fine art photography, still and moving images, the program is dedicated to exploiting the full potential of fashion photography as a platform for invention, creativity and subversion.
For more information about the program visit mpsfashionphoto.sva.edu.
The MFA program in Art Criticism & Writing is one of the only graduate writing programs in the world that focuses specifically on criticism. This program is not involved in “discourse production” or the prevarications of curatorial rhetoric, but rather in the practice of criticism writ large, aspiring to literature.
The practice of criticism involves making finer and finer distinctions among like things, but it is also a way to ask fundamental questions about art and life.
To see sample programs, faculty bios, news, the Degree Critical online journal and recordings of past lectures, go to artcriticism.sva.edu, or visit applyweb.com/apply/svag, to download the application.

In honor of Art Practical’s fiftieth issue, “Printed Matter,” we invite you to subscribe to the Art Practical Mail Art Subscription series. As a subscriber you will receive works of art as correspondence from each of six artists, starting in March 2012.
Each artist will explore and respond to Art Practical’s archive in a form of their choosing—a text, letter, photograph, drawing, etc.—which you will receive in the mail, once a month for six months. The articles the artists respond to are catalysts for the correspondence, an idea expressed by the writer that prompts reflection, retort, or inquiry in one direction or another. And they encourage subscribers to reply in turn, via a postcard enclosed with each piece of mail art.
The subscription will be produced in a limited edition of 150 prints for each artist; subscribers will receive a print, a copy of the original article, and a return postcard once a month for six months, for a total of six installments of Mail Art.
The Avant/Garde Diaries is a digital portrait magazine that invites leading creatives to talk about the cutting edge of art, design, fashion, music and film.
In each digital portrait, featured diarists are asked to introduce someone or something they consider to be ahead of their time. The result is a collection of very personal snapshots that celebrate new ways of thinking and spread inspiration.
The MFA Art Practice program is a low-residency, cross-disciplinary graduate program at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. The immersive program is composed of three intensive summer sessions, with rich-media online coursework in the intervening semesters. Students have access to the state of the art facilities on SVA’s campus, including new digital sculpture facilites, a fibers lab, and a nature and technology lab.
We encourage artists to pursue their practice by engaging an idea first, and then developing a plan that may involve a combination of media, technologies and techniques.
The MFA Art Practice Program is now accepting applications for Summer 2012 admission. Applicants should apply online though the SVA website. Applications will continue to be accepted from qualified applicants as space remains in the program. Detailed instructions about the application process can be found in the apply section of the Art Practice website.
