Columbia College Chicago Interdisciplinary Arts Graduate Department hosts CAA reception at the Drawing Center for faculty, current and prospective students and alumni.

Guest speaker: President Dr. Kim, Columbia College Chicago

 

Columbia’s Interdisciplinary Arts graduate program has been the worldwide leader in interdisciplinary arts study for 35 years. Highly regarded faculty of artists, a continuum of available technologies and matchless facilities—including a papermaker’s garden and experimental lab spaces—distinguish the program and make it a rich source of rare and inventive installations.

The Interdisciplinary Arts Department offers a Master of Arts in Interdisciplinary Arts, a Master of Fine Arts in Interdisciplinary Arts & Media, and a Master of Fine Arts in Interdisciplinary Book & Paper Arts. Through intellectual rigor, cross-collaboration among disciplines and advanced studio practice, you’ll turn ideas into fully realized and complex creations, and enter into the professional world of contemporary art.

Professional practice
This program encourages students to create a body of work that reflects the complexity of their world. They are asked to consider the context for that work—who is the audience, where will it be seen, how will it be presented? The emphasis on both creative practice and professional practice gives students an advantage—to become innovative practitioners and sophisticated professionals who understand how to position themselves in the contemporary art landscape.

Hybrid practice
The Interdisciplinary Arts department has three graduate degrees; we encourage students to embrace the permeable nature of our programs to investigate a vast array of department offerings including studio courses in artists books, hand papermaking, printmaking, video, electronics, sound, interaction, performance, installation, and creative writing, and theory/practice courses addressing topics such as autobiographical art, the body, visual narratives, and art+science collaborations.

Visiting artists
Interdisciplinary students are enriched by a visiting artist program that allows for meaningful interaction through seminars, workshops, lectures, and individual critiques with internationally renowned practitioners. Recent visiting artists include Sophie Kahn, Dahlia Elsayed, Laura Anderson Barbata, Timothy Barrett, Zoe Beloff, Tania Brughera, Julie Chen, Guillermo Gomez-Pena, Eungie Joo, Daniel Kelm, Amos Kennedy, Alison Knowles, Ligorano/Reese, Lucy Lippard, Mary Lucier, Christina McPhee, Bill Viola, Paul Wong, Trevor Paglen, Triple Canopy, Andrea Polli, Bob Stein, Chris Salter, and Pamela Z.
