Fellows of The Program meet once a week for a 3-hour seminar to discuss readings and visual materials with the Director of the Program, Sergio Muñoz Sarmiento, curator/art historian and Associate Director of the Program, Lauren van Haaften-Schick, and/or with a guest seminar leader. There is an emphasis on the close analysis of legal cases, texts and materials. Through this examination of legal structures and modes of thought, the Program aims to critique current artistic, curatorial, theoretical, art historical, and design practices and methodologies. At the conclusion of the seminars, Fall term Fellows are expected to participate in a pecha-kucha presentation.

Applicants with backgrounds in art, art history/criticism, curating, architecture, film, writing, philosophy, business, economics, sociology, urban planning, political science and history are strongly encouraged to apply.

The Fall 2016 term runs from September 12 to December 12, 2016. Seminars will be held at the School of Visual Arts, in New York City, on Monday nights from 6pm to 9pm.

Applications for the Fall 2016 term are due on July 4, 2016. Application inquiries should be sent via e-mail to Sergio Muñoz Sarmiento: sms@artlawoffice.com
