Program Concept
The Art Practice program offers a cross-disciplinary approach to an MFA degree. We approach artmaking holistically: artists in the program are not defined or separated by medium or discipline. In this post-conceptual, post-studio era, artists pursue their practice by engaging an idea first, and then developing a plan that may involve a combination of media, technologies and techniques, some of which are linked to traditional art media, and some of which find the artist working with technologies and industries not usually associated with artmaking.

We want to help prepare artists to feel secure in their ability to find ways to produce works of art using traditional and nontraditional media in both traditional and nontraditional settings. To accomplish this, we bring together a carefully selected, small group of MFA candidates who will devote three successive summers and the two intervening years to a program in which they will engage with artists, designers, art historians and museum curators, including Vito Acconci, Cory Arcangel, Dara Birnbaum, Kathy Brew, Eric and Heather ChanSchatz, Mark Dion, Liam Gillick, Thyrza Goodeve, Dan Graham, Susan Hefuna, Daniel Kunitz, Steven Henry Madoff, Ernesto Pujol, Martha Rosler, Tim Rollins, Gary Simmons, Mark Tribe, Mickalene Thomas, Robin Winters, and Linda Yablonsky.

Application Deadline

The MFA Art Practice program has rolling admissions. Applications received by January 15, 2012 will have priority for Summer 2012 admission. Decision letters will be mailed by April 1, 2012.
