Transart Academy Summer Certificate Program

Screen Shot 2015-04-28 at 10.23.41 AM


Guest artists and curators attend the summer certificate program to get a creative surge, revitalize their practice, get a fresh perspective on their work, experiment in a protected, supportive environment or to take their work in a new direction. Invited guests are typically mid-career artists and curators who wish to join graduate and doctoral students in workshops, lectures, critiques, exhibitions, and events. Guests have the opportunity to become members of the international Transartist Collective. Transart can also help you design a self-study program post-Certificate and support your praxis in the year to follow or advise you on an MFA or PhD proposal. Propose your own course of studies, including regular crit groups, advisors, proposal development and preparatory work for any of our academic programs.

3 weeks: July 24 – August 12
Deadline to apply: June 15
Tuition: $5000, no fees.
