Artists at the Institute

Taking advantage of the Institute’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 Institute Professor Kirk Varnedoe, who inspired the series.  The series normally includes two presentations per semester. The 2018 - 2019 student coordinators are Viola Angiolini and Peiyue Wu.
