The Division of Continuing Education at SVA offers a curriculum designed to give students the edge needed to compete in fields of art, communication and entertainment. New offerings each semester reflect changes in the dynamics of the professional world as well as the diversity of new trends in the field of visual arts. The curriculum includes courses for all levels of study, ranging from classes for beginners, to residencies for emerging artists and seminars for experienced professionals.
|1||VideoConcerning Human Understanding||The SVA Summer Residency Program presents an exhibition of work by program alumni that investigates artistic production through language, and engages a discourse on communication, understanding and society. Participating artists include Sandra Erbacher, who questions and disrupts the authoritative monolith of institutions through playful critique of objects and language; Marianna Olinger, who investigates madness as a language through the process of deconstructing her own documentary film about a defunct mental institution in Rio de Janeiro; and Tim Roseborough, who challenges the viewing of artworks by using his own self-designed Englyph system to provoke a debate between written language and visual art. Curated by Keren Moscovitch, SVA faculty member and assistant director of Special Programs in the Division of Continuing Education. The exhibition is accompanied by a panel discussion with the artists and SVA faculty member and art writer Thyrza Nichols Goodeve on Wednesday, July 15, 7:00 – 9:00pm.||7/27/2015||Free||View In iTunes|
|2||VideoMapping Impact: Exploring How to Measure Social Design||Over the past decade a great deal of funding and resources have been dedicated to community-based design work, from architecture and urban planning to graphic and product design, yet far fewer resources have been dedicated to assessing the impact of these projects and initiatives on the communities and individuals they claim to affect. This panel discussion covers what designers can learn from how other fields think about impact measurement. Panelists include Sasha Dichter, chief innovation officer, Acumen; Robert Fabricant, co-founder and principal, Dahlberg’s Design Impact Group; Chelsea Mauldin, executive director, Public Policy Lab; and Rachel Dannefer, of New York City’s Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. Presented by Design Ignites Change and Impact: Design for Social Change at SVA.||3/24/2015||Free||View In iTunes|
