[Sponsor] School of Visual Arts Art Practice: A Low-Res, Interdisciplinary Approach to an MFA

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.

Listening to the Voice of Diane Arbus

It’s not often that we get to be present for a posthumous lecture given by the deceased being honored. An Evening with Diane Arbus and Marvin Israel, presented at the School of Visual Arts in collaboration with the Aperture Foundation, was just that. Out of the pure darkness of a hushed theater came the crackling sound of Diane Arbus’ voice, saying cheerfully as a slide machine started to whirr, “Let me show you some pictures.” What proceeded was a shy, stumbling, incredibly humorous and deeply meaningful lecture by the infamous and famous artist herself. On the 40th anniversary of the artist’s suicide in the summer of 1971, this presentation is a recording of a lecture Arbus gave about her artwork, interests and motivations as she saw them in 1970
