SMU MFA /// Free /// Applications due Feb 1

Due: February 1, 2016
SMU offers up to six full fellowships each year supplemented by teaching assistantships. Funds are also available for supplies and travel.
The M.F.A. program is interdisciplinary so that students are free to explore a wide range of materials, processes and histories. Each year, the most competitive, ambitious and thoughtful artists are admitted—regardless of medium.
Visitors have included:
Bill Arning, Magali Arriola, Dore Ashton, Julie Ault, Yael Bartana, Walead Beshty, Gregg Bordowitz, Tania Bruguera, Dan Byers, David Diao, Nicole Eisenman, Theaster Gates, K8 Hardy, Alfredo Jaar, Guillermo Kuitca, Deana Lawson, Jill Magid, Dave McKenzie, Ute Meta Bauer, Paul Pfeiffer, R.H. Quaytman, Walid Raad, Franklin Sirmans, Michael Smith, and Eve Sussman.
Selected Dallas-Fort Worth Area Museums:
Dallas Museum of Art, the Nasher Sculpture Center, The Dallas Contemporary, the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, the Kimbell Art Museum and private collections such as the Warehouse and the Power Station.
Each year a series of programs are offered off campus, including the MFA Site Seminar, a week-long retreat held alternately in an international location and on the SMU campus in Taos, N.M. These intensive sessions are run by faculty along with visiting artists or scholars. In 2014, students visited SOMA in Mexico City, meeting with Yoshua Okón, Minerva Cuevas and others. In 2016 we plan to bring MFA students to Brazil. 
Finally, at the end of the two-year MFA program, exceptional graduates are selected for a series of post-graduate fellowships, including an exchange program with E.N.A.S. in Dijon, France, which includes a studio, stipend and exhibition to further their work and research, and scholarship agreements with SOMA and Skowhegan.

2016 A-Z West Tour Dates, Joshua Tree, CA

A-Z West is a project located on fifty acres in the California high desert next to Joshua Tree National Park. Since 2000 the grounds have been ever evolving as Andrea Zittel’s test site for experimental designs in living, where all aspects of day-to-day living—home furniture, clothing, and food—become sites of investigation in an ongoing endeavor to better understand human nature and the social construction of needs.

Tours are about two hours long and include Zittel's personal residence, studio, Wagon Station Encampment, the A-Z West guest cabin, Regenerating Field, and the shipping container compound.
