Open Studios 2022

Yale School of Art

Design: Rok Hudobivnik and Ana Lobo.

The Yale School of Art is excited to announce that its annual graduate open studios event is taking place both in person and online in 2022. Studios will be open to the public and are located across three buildings on Yale’s campus in downtown New Haven. Open Studios 2022 marks the first time that the doors of the School of Art buildings will be open to the public since the beginning of the COVID pandemic in March 2020.

The physical studios of participating MFA students will be open to the public from 12–6pm on Saturday, April 9 and Sunday, April 10 in the departments of Graphic Design, Painting and Printmaking, Photography, and Sculpture. Pre-registration is encouraged, but day-of registration will also be available at the door. Register to attend Saturday here, and register to attend Sunday here. Masks must be worn by everyone in indoor spaces within School of Art buildings, in compliance with Yale University’s masking guidelines. Proof of vaccination (including boosters) is also required for all members of the public and will be checked upon entry.

Events—screenings, performances, and workshops—are also being hosted across the School of Art as part of Open Studios. The full schedule of events will be made available through the School of Art’s public events calendar and on the 2022 Open Studios website.

Virtual studios are also being created in collaboration with participating MFA students, through which work will be presented online in an effort to expand the means through which MFA students’ work and practice is made available to the public as part of the annual open studios event. The virtual studios will be accessible with the launch of the 2022 Open Studios website at 12am on Saturday April 9.

Related exhibition at the Yale School of Art:
no white walls at 32 Edgewood Ave. An exhibition curated by graduate students featuring work by MFA students across the northeast.

The inaugural Yale School of Art Annual exhibition, no white walls seeks to engage themes of collectivity and challenge the established history of the exhibition space in Western museums and galleries—a history dominated by the white cube formula. As such, this exhibition will focus on artworks that stand free from the walls and incorporate sonic, tactile, and/or olfactory elements. Through a refusal to engage in a market that capitalizes on the exploitation of MFA students, the exhibition will provide an alternative and temporary platform to practitioners that move beyond siloed forms of knowledge keeping.

A full-time faculty of working artists in conjunction with a diverse cross-section of accomplished visiting artists collaborate to design a program and foster an environment where the unique talents and perspectives of individual students can emerge and flourish.
