MFA Fine Arts is an interdisciplinary studio program that emphasizes exploration and experimentation. Led by department chair Mark Tribe, our internationally renowned faculty includes Polly Apfelbaum, Perry Bard, Jim Clark, Petah Coyne, Thierry de Duve, Kenji Fujita, Kate Gilmore, Thyrza Goodeve, Johan Grimonprez, Gianni Jetzer, Ken Landauer, Tommy Lanigan-Schmidt, Stephen Maine, Suzanne McClelland, Dave McKenzie, Marilyn Minter, Wangechi Mutu, Judith Page, Alix Pearlstein, David Row, Elizabeth Schambelan, Michelle Segre, James Siena, Lisa Sigal, Amy Smith-Stewart, Gary Stephan, Julianne Swartz, Hakan Topal, Sarah Trigg, Fred Wilson, and Jackie Winsor.

Graduates of the program include Katherine Bernhardt, Luca Buvoli, Andy Collins, Inka Essenhigh, Kate Gilmore, Johan Grimonprez, Michelle Lopez, Suzanne McClelland, and Sarah Sze.

Together, the faculty and students form a community of established and emerging artists from many backgrounds who work across disciplines and modes of practice.

Our program provides a stimulating and supportive environment in which students from many backgrounds can thrive and develop as artists. We aim to foster rigorous critical engagement with contemporary art and other cultural forms, and to produce an ongoing conversation, through work as much as through words, about what we make, how we make it and why. We respect craft and form while encouraging an approach to art-making in which ideas or questions serve as points of departure for artistic processes that may lead in unforeseen directions. While some students may remain committed to a single medium for the duration of their study, most experiment with multiple modes of production. In addition to drawing, painting, printmaking and sculpture, students may explore animation, digital art, installation, performance, photography, public projects, social practice, video, and numerous other disciplines. Students in the MFA Fine Arts program have the freedom to reinvent themselves.

The close relationship between faculty and students—formed in seminars and workshops, but also through informal interactions—gives students the confidence to take risks and to follow a personal course of intellectual and aesthetic investigation.

MFA Fine Arts attracts ambitious emerging artists from many countries around the world. In our commitment to art, and to one another, we provide a foundation for artistic growth that extends beyond graduation and forms an ongoing platform of professional support.

In this full-time, two-year, 60-credit program, seminars and workshops are complemented by weekly visits from artists, curators, critics and gallerists, who are invited to give lectures and meet with students in their studios. Students may audit up to four undergraduate or continuing education courses, and take advantage of SVA’s lectures and other resources. Each student is given a private studio with 24-hour access.

School of Visual Arts (SVA) in New York City is an established leader and innovator in the education of artists. From its inception in 1947, the faculty has been comprised of professionals working in the arts and art-related fields. SVA provides an environment that nurtures creativity, inventiveness and experimentation, enabling students to develop a strong sense of identity and a clear direction of purpose.
