What is the future of the art school? In the West, the model of the art school has not changed in one hundred years. What is this model? Is it still useful? In the age of the Internet, of rapidly advancing technologies and economies, is it time to change the way we think about art schools, about artistic production and the roles of artists, curators, collectors, museums, and the art market locally and globally? This lecture by Steven Henry Madoff, a leading world expert on art education and an international curator who leads the Masters Program in Curatorial Practice at the School of Visual Arts in New York, will discuss the history of art schools and new alternative models emerging across the world.
