Study Abroad/Off-Campus: Contemporary Art and Criticism: Winter in New York City
January 3 to 12, 2013 *Note: Dates subject to change
Contemporary Art and Criticism in New York City will be a densely organized examination of the city’s art institutions, commercial and nonprofit galleries, and its critical and educational apparatus. Undisputedly, New York is a cultural capital, a place where students can get a measure of global visual art production and its exchange. As a criterion for contemporary art, it is a city that must be confronted and regularly apprised if one is pursuing visual culture. Studio visits, a day trip to Dia Beacon, a visit to the editorial offices at Artforum, and talks with curators and dealers comprise the itinerary.
