Global Crit Clinics – [2012-2014 ]

The Global Crit Clinics serve international communities where emerging fine artists have limited access to rigorous idea-based dialogue. They are rooted in the Fine Arts pedagogical studio critique and affectionately known as the “10-Day MFA”. These 2-week intensives are site-responsive and adaptable to the framework of their individual locations. They bring together faculty from arts institutions and universities across the world to facilitate critical dialogues. Alongside several days of group critique, individual studio visits, and portfolio reviews, the clinic presents curated screenings, thematic roundtable discussions, and workshops focused on areas of professional development, such as: Portfolio Development; Graduate Study; Writing for Artists; Global Opportunities and Social Networking. The FCA-Ghana collaborated with Kianga Ford (lead facilitator) and former Assistant Professor of New Genres in the School of Art, Media, and Technology at Parsons, The New School for Design in New York and Shane Aslan Selzer(Co- Facilitator) an artist and writer.
