Take Your Practice to the Next Level
Transart MFA or Studio PhD
Preferred MFA and early PhD application deadline: December 1, 2013
Uniquely international for exchange and connections across cultural boundaries, with intensives in Berlin and New York, Transart's low-residency PhD, MFA and Certificate programs offer a plethora of input at residencies with dozens of innovative workshops, artist talks, lectures, pecha kuchas, walkshops, seminars, cultural tours to choose from; extensive individual and full group critiques with artists and curators; and performances, pop-up events and exhibitions to participate in. A recent residency program is here.
MFA CREATIVE PRACTICE
Offsite choose from an extensive pool of international curators, artists and theorists for advise and critique for your self-directed, independent art projects working in whatever media best expresses your vision.
For New York-based artist Virgil Wong "the community I've become a part of through Transart is already much more immersive than what I've developed in ten years of living and working as an artist in New York City". German photographer and performer Angelika Rinnhofer found: "...freedom and flexibility. Since a large number of students are accomplished artists and earn a living, Transart's concept is ideal to work toward a degree and to expand one's artistic career in addition to having a job."
Ongoing connections, critique and support are essential ingredients for a vital artistic practice and successful academic career. Alumni join an international group of emerging and mid-career artists and curators in the Transartist Collective to stay connected and active, continuing to show, curate and perform together internationally.
Transart Institute offers the first and only low-residency PhD program exclusively for practice-based research (creative work). The artwork is the research in this 20-30 hour per week, three year program. Program info can be found on our website. The application process is explained here. A sample proposal can be found online. Proposal support options are available.
As always, faculty are happy to discuss programs with you in detail. Please contact Dr. Michael Bowdidge for an appointment: firstname.lastname@example.org
