Each year Pratt Fine Arts invites contemporary artists to campus for a public lecture and to conduct studio visits with fine arts graduate students. This Visiting Artists Lecture Series (VALS) is coordinated by graduate student leaders. The aim is to provide our students with exposure to a wide array of artists working in a variety of fields at various stages in their career.

Recent visiting artists include: Lorna Simpson, Rico Gatson, Anicka Yi, Jill Magid, Daniel Heidkamp, Nicole Eisenman, Tom Sachs, Aura Satz, Leigh Ledare, Judith Bernstein, Dan Walsh, Kalup Linzey, Keltie Ferris, LaToya Ruby Frazier, Trenton Doyle Hancock, Diana Al-Hadid, Mary Walling-Blackburn, Michelle Handelman, Phoebe Washburn, Rashaad Newsome, Dora + Maja, Bryan Zanisnik, Nancy Grossman, Guido Van Der Werve, Carrie Schneider, Tamy Ben Tor and Miki Carmi, Peter Saul, Michael Berryhill, Wafaa Bilal, and Catherine Opie.   

The  2018–19 Visiting Artists Lecture Series was made possible in part by a generous grant from The Robert Lehman Foundation with additional support from Locanda Vini e Olii.

About Pratt Institute’s MFA Program in Fine Arts
Located in Brooklyn’s thriving art community, Pratt’s MFA in Fine Arts immerses students in a culture of contemporary art supported by a faculty of working artists and peers. The graduate curriculum is both rigorous and flexible, allowing wide latitude for interdisciplinary exploration while fostering critical perspectives and a deeper understanding of the histories, issues, and cultural contexts that inform artmaking today.

Pratt’s MFA degree is in fine arts rather than in a specific discipline. Students build their program of study in consultation with a faculty mentor and departmental advisors. Graduate instruction is offered in a wide range of media, including painting and drawingprintmakingphotographysculpture, and integrated practices (installation, public art, performance). Beyond departmental courses, MFA students may choose graduate-level electives in any department in Pratt Institute. Concurrent dual degree programs (MS/MFA) are also offered in History of Art and in Art and Design Education.

Participants work in individual studios and are provided access to shared shops and labs, including a fully-equipped woodshop, metal shop, print shop, ceramics studios, darkrooms, and digital labs with high-resolution scanners and printers, as well as dedicated campus galleries. There are many opportunities to show work in a variety of traditional and nontraditional spaces on campus. Each semester, students open their studios to the public and second-year students mount individual thesis shows that are also open to the public. In addition to a regular schedule of studio visits by faculty members, the department’s Visiting Artists Lecture Series brings internationally renowned artists and critics to give public lectures and have individual studio visits with graduate students. In addition, the graduate student group Pratt Artists League (PAL) regularly hosts artists and critics for studio visits and funds other student-run programming and exhibitions.

Pratt’s faculty members in fine arts are distinguished by their achievements, having exhibited internationally as well as receiving major awards from institutions including the Guggenheim Foundation National Endowment for the Arts, Tiffany Foundation, Joan Mitchell Foundation, Skowhegan, Pollock-Krasner Foundation, Creative Capital, and Art Matters. Pratt’s graduate fine art students come from around the world and are selected for the program based on their promise and preparedness for the intensive and self-directed experience of graduate study.
