Each year, the NYU Steinhardt MFA Program in Studio Art brings together an exceptional group of committed artists to develop their work within a community of faculty and colleagues, asking them to engage for two to three years in a process that is both intensely introspective and collectively open to the challenges and issues of the larger world. We invite students in the program to consider their own practices and assumptions, as well as those of the contemporary art world, both critically and irreverently, and to pursue their visions to the point of excess as needed. The MFA program is dedicated to assisting in this endeavor.

Join us for the openings of these two exhibitions, which represent the culmination of the first two years of this process.

MFA Faculty: Nancy Barton, Ross Bleckner, Carol Bove, Jesse Bransford, Peter Campus, Sue DeBeer, Trisha Donnelly, Maureen Gallace, RoseLee Goldberg, Amy Granat, Lyle Ashton Harris, Kevin McCoy, Paul Pfeiffer, Jack Pierson, Gerald Pryor, Adam Putnam, David Rimanelli, Aida Ruilova, Judith Schwartz, and John Torreano.
