Grants and projects

During the pandemic, we invited students to think about "radical hospitality". What is hospitality in a period of emergencies, and how can such a frame be explored by an art school tied to a university? Placing the adjective ‘radical’ before ‘hospitality’ introduced what seemed to be the right amount of emotional and intellectual tension to structure a critical series of engagements between cultural workers and their community.

The result was our CiCA in Your Studio series on Instagram, a video collection where MFA students shared their workspaces and pandemic lives.
