Transart Institute

MFA Creative Practice
Path to a studio PhD

Application deadline: June 1, 2010

http://www.transartinstitute.org
Transart Institute offers the MFA Creative Practice, an international
masters program for working artists with summer residencies in Berlin,
winter residencies in New York and one-on-one advisement during two
academic years - wherever students work and live.

Students are free to pursue work in any art-related genre and to
create their own course of study, working independently and with the
support of self-chosen studio and research advisors. Short periods of
intensive residency permit students to continue with their
professional work and keep a balanced personal life while
participating in the program. The majority of Transart students are
emerging and mid-career artists and teachers at tertiary institutions.
Transart Institute's residencies are a place for cultural exchange.
Current students will converge for the summer residency from areas as
diverse as Puerto Rico, Pakistan, Iceland, Croatia, Ethiopia, Canada,
Costa Rica, Germany, Austria, Egypt, the Netherlands, the Philippines,
the UK and the US.

Faculty for the coming summer includes:

Iraqi born artist Wafaa Bilal who has exhibited his art world wide
and traveled and lectured extensively to inform audiences of the
situation of the Iraqi people, and the importance of peaceful conflict
resolution. Bilal's 2007 dynamic installation Domestic Tension placed
him on the receiving end of a paintball gun that was accessible online
to a worldwide audience, 24 hours a day. Newsweek called the project
"breathtaking" and the Chicago Tribune called the month-long piece
"one of the sharpest works of political art to be seen in a long
time," and named Bilal its 2007 Artist of the Year. In fall 2008 City
Lights published "Shoot an Iraqi: Life, Art and Resistance Under the
Gun," about Bilal's life and the Domestic Tension project.

Carolyn Guertin, Director of the eCreate Lab and Assistant Professor
of Digital Media in the Department of English at the University of
Texas at Arlington. She is also a Mentor in the de Montfort
University's Online MA in Creative Writing and New Media in the U.K.
and Senior McLuhan Fellow at the McLuhan Program in Culture and
Technology at the University of Toronto, Canada. She was a presenter
at the Hybridities Symposium at Ars Electronica in 2005. She earned
her doctorate in digital narrative at the University of Alberta in
2003, and does theoretical work on cyberfeminism, interface
technologies and born-digital arts.

And Nicolás Estévez, an interdisciplinary artist working mostly in
performance art and public interventions. His projects have been
exhibited extensively in the US as well as internationally at venues
such as Madrid Abierto/ARCO, Havana Biennial, El Museo del Barrio,
Bronx Museum of the Arts, P.S.1/MoMA. In 2007 Estévez was awarded an
alumni commission to present a town-wide project as part of The
MacDowell Colony Centennial. His work has been reviewed in The New
York Times, NYArts Magazine, The Boston Globe, Art Nexus, Flash Art,
Cuban Arts, and in major publications in Mexico, Spain and the
Dominican Republic.

The new MFA Creative Practice is a student-centered postgraduate art
program which fosters independent thinking, risk-taking and the
creation of an informed and sustainable art praxis. The Institute is
also a platform for faculty to expand their teaching praxis by making
space for creativity and experimentation. Beyond its educational
objectives, Transart Institute is engaged in building an international
community in support of students, alumni, faculty and their artistic
and academic goals. The institute offers its former students a virtual
and material basis for artistic practice, the exchange of ideas,
opportunities and critiques, supporting individual and collective
growth beyond the duration of the program. Despite its small size,
Transart Institute has become a place where the diverse and often
incongruous experiences, philosophies and epistemologies of the
post-colonial world can be in contact with each other.

Practice-based PhD
A path to a studio-based PhD is in progress and practice-based
doctoral programs are currently available through University of
Plymouth. For more information or to subscribe to upcoming news about
a Transart Institute PhD program please contact:
cella {AT} transartinstitute.org

Summer Certificate
Transart Institute also offers a summer program for artists who are
not seeking a degree. Participants join MFA students in workshops,
lectures and critiques and leave the residency with input on project
plans for the year ahead. Artists attend the residency to get a
creative surge, get a fresh perspective on their work, revitalize
their practice, take their work in a new direction, make plans for a
focussed praxis in the year ahead and to become part of an
international community of artists, theorists and curators. Artists
who successfully complete the residency will receive a non-credit
certificate of attendance.

Summer Residency 2010:  July 25 - August 13, 2010 in Berlin
Winter Residency 2011: January 6 - 9, 2011 in Brooklyn, NY
Application deadline with rolling admissions: June 1, 2010
