The MFA program in Art Criticism & Writing is one of the only graduate writing programs in the world that focuses specifically on criticism. This program is not involved in “discourse production” or the prevarications of curatorial rhetoric, but rather in the practice of criticism writ large, aspiring to literature.

The practice of criticism involves making finer and finer distinctions among like things, but it is also a way to ask fundamental questions about art and life. The MFA program in Art Criticism & Writing is designed to give students a grounding in the philosophical and historical bases of criticism, to improve both their writing and their seeing, and to provide sources that they can draw on for the rest of their lives. Critics cannot afford to be specialists, so our curriculum is wide-ranging.

In addition to our exceptional core faculty, we invite many writers, critics, philosophers, editors, artists, and art historians in each year to give lectures and to meet with our students individually and in small groups. Recent guests include: Susan Buck-Morss, Sylvère Lotringer, Avital Ronell, W.J.T. Mitchell, Michael Taussig, Boris Groys, Leo Steinberg, Peter Schjeldahl, Ann Lauterbach, Bill Berkson, and Dave Hickey.

We are now accepting applications for the fall 2012 term. Generous departmental scholarships are available on a competitive basis. To download an application, go to https://www.applyweb.com/apply/svag, or contact us at artcrit@sva.edu, or (212) 592-2408 for further information.
