Visiting Artists and Scholars Lecture SeriesSpheres of Interest: Experiments in Thinking & Action

The Winifred Johnson Clive Foundation Distinguished Visiting Painting Fellowships and the Pilara Foundation Distinguished Visiting Photography Fellowships are envisioned to provide SFAI’s students with direct access to artists and thinkers whose contributions to contemporary global art practice and theory represent the highest level of achievement and the promise of continued excellence. With a view to deepening each artist’s impact, the fellowships are structured as sustained on-campus residencies that provide SFAI’s students extensive interaction with the fellows—facilitating discussions of process, aesthetics, cultural influences, and career paths.

SFAI’s exhibitions and public programs—a component of which is the Visiting Artists and Scholars Lecture Series—are supported in part by the Grants for the Arts/San Francisco Hotel Tax Fund. The Distinguished Visiting Painting Fellowships are funded by the Winifred Johnson Clive Foundation, and the Distinguished Visiting Photography Fellowships are funded by the Pilara Foundation. The performances by domizil and ICST are presented by SFAI’s Exhibitions and Public Programs in conjunction with Swissnex San Francisco. The exhibition Everyday Miracles (Extended) is presented in collaboration with REDCAT, where it is made possible with the support of the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, the Arts Council Korea, the George and MaryLou Boone Fund for Artistic Advancement, and the Taipei Cultural Center in New York City. The Richard C. Diebenkorn Teaching Fellowship was established in 1998 by the generosity of Richard Diebenkorn’s family; the $25,000 fellowship makes it possible for the contemporary artist to whom it is awarded both to teach at SFAI and to pursue studio work.

Spheres of Interest: Experiments in Thinking & Action is organized through SFAI’s Division of Graduate Studies in cooperation with SFAI’s Centers for Interdisciplinary Study. The screenings of Yvonne Rainer’s films Journeys from Berlin/1971 and Privilege are presented in conjunction with San Francisco Cinematheque.

San Francisco Art Institute
Founded in 1871, SFAI is one of the oldest and most prestigious schools of higher education in contemporary art in the US. Focusing on the interdependence of thinking, making, and learning, SFAI’s academic and public programs are dedicated to excellence and diversity.

SFAI’s School of Studio Practice concentrates on developing the artist’s vision through studio experiments and is based on the belief that artists are an essential part of society. It offers a BFA, an MFA, and a Post-Baccalaureate certificate in Design and Technology, Film, New Genres, Painting, Photography, Printmaking, and Sculpture/Ceramics.

SFAI’s School of Interdisciplinary Studies is motivated by the premise that critical thinking and writing, informed by an in-depth understanding of theory and practice, are essential for engaging contemporary global society. It offers degree programs in Exhibition and Museum Studies (MA only), History and Theory of Contemporary Art (BA and MA), and Urban Studies (BA and MA).

SFAI’s Dual Degree MA/MFA program is ideally designed for students who seek a deep and balanced immersion in both theoretical discourse and art practice. A three-year commitment, the degree consists in an MA in History and Theory of Contemporary Art and an MFA in any area of study within the School of Studio Practice (see above).
