TRANSART INSTITUTE seeks independent, inquisitive and imaginative artist for its MFA Creative Practice. Transart Institute offers a UK-validated two year low-residency course for working artists, teachers and all professionals in related fields who are seeking advancement in Visual Arts and New Media. The program consists of three intensive summer residencies in Berlin and two shorter, optional winter residencies in New York. In the four semesters between residencies, students create an individual course of study with the support of faculty and self-chosen artist mentors wherever they work and live. 

BURSARIES available to students of the new MFA Creative Practice program include Developing Country Scholarships, Achievement and Merit Scholarships. The scholarships provide a reduction in tuition up to 50%. More information on scholarships can be found online: www.transartinstitute.org/Admissions.html

TRANSART FACULTY AND STUDENTS come from a wide range of academic and artistic backgrounds as well as geographic locations. A majority of Transart students are emerging and mid-career artists and teachers at tertiary institutions. Summer Faculty includes:

Iraqi born artist Wafaa Bilal who has exhibited his art world wide and traveled and lectured extensively to inform audiences of the situation of the Iraqi people, and the importance of peaceful conflict resolution. Bilal's dynamic installation Domestic Tension placed him on the receiving end of a paintball gun that was accessible online to a worldwide audience, 24 hours a day. Newsweek called the project “breathtaking” and the Chicago Tribune called the month-long piece "one of the sharpest works of political art to be seen in a long time," and named Bilal Artist of the Year. 

Myron Beasley is an International Curator and Ethnographer who lectures in the areas of Critical Cultural Studies and Performance Studies. His recent work explores how traditional ritual practices are mitigated, configured, and interpreted in particular sites/cities of the African Diaspora. His fieldwork has led him to the United States, Morocco, Brazil, and most recently Haiti where he is the co-curator of the Ghetto Biennale. He is also a performance artist who uses food as his primary medium. 

Nicolás Estévez, an interdisciplinary artist working mostly in performance art and public interventions. His projects have been exhibited extensively internationally at venues such as Madrid Abierto/ARCO, Havana Biennial, El Museo del Barrio, Bronx Museum of the Arts, P.S.1/MoMA. Estévez has been awarded a commission to present a town-wide project as part of The MacDowell Colony Centennial. His work has been reviewed in The New York Times, NYArts Magazine, The Boston Globe, Art Nexus, Flash Art, Cuban Arts, and in major publications in Mexico, Spain and the Dominican Republic. 

All faculty bios are at: www.transartinstitute.org/members.html
The full summer program is online at: www.transartinstitute.org/summer_program.html

THE TRANSART INTERNATIONAL COLLECTIVE, started by faculty and alumni, will hold exhibitions in Vienna, Manila and Berlin this year. The institute offers its former students a virtual and material basis for artistic practice, the exchange of ideas, opportunities and critiques, supporting individual and collective growth beyond the duration of the program through the collective. Despite its small size, Transart Institute has become a place where the diverse and often incongruous experiences, philosophies and epistemologies of the post-colonial world can be in contact with each other. More information online at: http://www.transartinstitute.org/collective.html

APPLICATION DEADLINE is June 15, 2010. Admissions is through online application, interviews with finalists for the MFA programme are conducted through video link.
