Visiting Artists

Visiting artists of diverse backgrounds frequently join the MassArt community for a few days, weeks, or months. Through lectures, slide talks, gallery walkthroughs, symposia, and residencies, these artists share their perspectives on practicing their chosen craft.

Visits often coincide with exhibitions of artists' work, granting MassArt students the unique opportunity to participate in mounting professional installations. While some visits are intimately tied to curricula, others are designed to fill a gap or broaden the student experience.

Studying photography first in Canada at the University of Manitoba, then at Yale University’s School of Art, ideas and work are formed through a perspective that affords, perhaps insists upon, a kind of attention to the act of looking and of picturing.
