The number of symposia, panels, and lectures offered in New York in any one week is overwhelming. Whatever etymology, the discussion is usually based upon “THE TOPIC.” The Talkers is an evening that ventures from this format, in which there will be five topics, one proposed by each of the participants. Each “Talker” presents his or her thoughts, generating a megalopolis of ideas. Their responses and conversations unfold in this public forum. Panelists enact the role of talk, talking and talkers as an enterprise of currency in contemporary art and culture. The Talkers include visual artists, writers, educators and curators. Rochelle Feinstein is a New York-based painter and printmaker on the faculty of Yale.

The BFA Visual & Critical Studies Department at SVA is a multidisciplinary studio program designed to engage and challenge ambitious students in areas beyond a single medium of expression and creation. This dynamic course of study reflects our rapidly expanding visual culture and the increasing urgency to educate students about all aspects of visual experience. Visual & Critical Studies allows students an extraordinary opportunity to shape their own multi-dimensional art education through a guided combination of studio courses and academic offerings focusing on myriad forms and venues of contemporary visual life.
