  • Field Study Trips

    Field Study Trips

    The program will include two Field Study trips during which students will become immersed in the local art community. As a culmination of the Field Study course, the trip will contextualize art market, art historical, and art object information through daily visits to fairs, galleries, private collections, museums, artists’ studios, and more. Throughout the Field Study experience, students will have the opportunity to interact with local art world professionals and are expected to be active participants, through both individual presentations as well as seminar discussions. Destinations vary per year to include timely and relevant exhibitions, art fairs, and international art world events. Past trips have included Art Basel Miami Beach, The European Fine Art Fair (TEFAF) in Maastricht, Beijing, Venice Biennale, Art Dubai and the Sharjah Biennial, and SP-Arte in São Paulo.
    Students completing the Hybrid MA program will have three semesters in which to complete the two Field Study trips required for graduation.
