Artists at the Institute
Taking advantage of the IFA’s location in one of the world’s leading art centers, the Graduate Student Association invites artists to discuss their work at the Institute. Begun in 1983, these talks are now funded by a generous gift in memory of late IFA Professor Kirk Varnedoe, who inspired the series. The series normally includes two presentations per semester. The 2015 - 2016 student coordinators are Anna Blum and Patryk Tomaszewski.
