Otis Graduate Public Practice Program Call for Applications


http://www.otis.edu/gppMapping the Terrain: New Genre Public Art

Students start with a collaborative project led by artists such as Andrea Bowers, Suzanne Lacy and Rick Lowe, which results in an exhibition or public presentation. During this process, they meet and interact with recognized artists such as Mel Chin and Sam Durant, and network with artists, critics, and curators from around the world. Students travel individually or as a group as part of their curriculum, exploring cultures in diverse locations such as a small farming town in California’s San Joaquin Valley or hurricane-ravaged New Orleans.

Each participant’s learning plan includes a menu of skills, classes in different art media, theories of public practice, and internships with artists such as Mario Ybarra , Edgar Arceneaux and Kim Abeles. Their self-defined curriculum provides opportunities for one-on-one studies with artists such as Rachel Rosenthal, L.A. Urban Rangers, and others across the Southern California region. Students can take classes within Otis’ graduate programs in writing, fine arts, and graphic design, and in other departments. The full range of Otis shops, faculty, courses, and library is available for students’ production.

Visiting artists and faculty provide rigorous and supportive one-on-one and group critiques. Recent visitors include S.A. Bachman, Nao Bustamonte, Mel Chin, Teddy Cruz, Sam Durant, Future Farmers, Miriam Ghani, Fritz Haeg, Grant Kester, Nav Haq, Willie Herrón, Dolores Huerta, Olga Koumoundoros, Karen Moss, Nobuho Nagasawa, Tone Olaf Nielsen, Martha Rosler, Temporary Services, Carol Stakenas, Sally Tallant, Claude Willey, and Tirdad Zolghadr.
