Columbia Visual Arts and Sound Art MFA Programs

Applications are now open for the MFA Visual Arts and Sound Art Programs at Columbia University School of the Arts. Both programs attract emerging artists from around the world, and upon graduating, our students join a diverse and welcoming circle of distinguished alumni.

The Visual Arts Program is interdisciplinary and offers an MFA degree in Visual Arts rather than in one specific medium. The two-year studio program, taught by internationally celebrated artists, allows students to pursue drawing, installation, painting, performance, photography, printmaking, sculpture and video. The MFA Sound Art Program, offered in association with the Visual Arts MFA Program, the Department of Music, and the Computer Music Center, allows students the opportunity to pursue creative work in a variety of genres and focus on the integration of sound with other media.

Register for the upcoming Information Sessions:
Visual Arts MFA: Sunday, November 15 at 11 am ET, Register Here
Sound Art MFA: Sunday, November 15 at 1 pm ET, Register Here

Contemporary Art Quarterly: Keren Cytter

As so many of us are still unable to visit art in person, we’re inundated with digital material from many sources, filling our inboxes and feeds with thousands of decontextualized works by hundreds of artists. In case you’d like to spend a while absorbed in the universe of a single artist’s practice, you might like to visit Contemporary Art Quarterly, where we publish deep archives of the work of individual artists.

At the moment, we’re featuring the archive of Keren Cytter, where you can find documentation of 86 projects by the Israeli artist.
