New Classes! A Student Council! Student curators! The Bruce High Quality Foundation University has launched a whole bunch of fresh happenings at the BHQFU this fall semester—registration begins today, and runs through August 24.
Bad news for those planning to do anything other than look at art this week: Your week is fucked. It’s Armory Week, which for art professionals and lovers alike means a marathon of art-viewing practically guaranteed to hurt your eyes at some point. There’s treatment for these kinds of injuries, but the best advice we can offer is to simply be careful out there.
Don’t overdo it. Eat well. Get lots of rest. You’ll need it.
Bruce High Quality Foundation University (BHQFU), the city’s only bastion for free and off-the-wall art education, has announced new courses for a two-week session this May. It’s part of the collective’s latest acronym-stretching project BYOU (Bring Your Own University).
I’ve never been able to come up with a top ten list of exhibitions; big, lasting ideas don’t always take place in art on the wall. So, keep that in mind with my best-of list; there’re exhibitions, sure, but my main requirement was picking “art” that I keep coming back to time-and-time again.
Fuck yeah! The Bruce High Quality Foundation University—a one-room schoolhouse located just above a bodega—returns this fall. The BHQFU is like grad school, but it’s mostly free, with classes offered on nights and weekends. In a lot of ways it’s better than grad school—instructors are accessible, and unbounded by university bureaucracy, they end up crafting courses straight out of a dream notebook.
Have the number of dude centric net art shows slowed since we published “Enough with Dude-Centric Net Art Shows” last April?

We invite all those who participated or watched the comment threads to attend, in addition to those just learning about the post now. The post sparked a healthy debate about sexism, journalism, and curatorial practice.
This event will be available via Live Stream. Check the BHQFU facebook page for the link the day of.
