I would like to present you the upcoming art program offered by the Institut des hautes etudes en arts plastiques (Iheap) in the fall 2015 in New York.
Iheap is a post-graduate institute for research and experimentation in art that serves as the educational branch of the Biennale de Paris.
The program offers its participants a unique course of study that is not bound to the history of 20th century art but actively encourages the investigation of crucial issues of art in the 21st century, an ongoing history in which our students, known as sessionists, will probably help write.
Iheap is open to all who have an expectation to engage not only within the art world. Iheap is a fluid school with each class taking place at a different location, such as art organizations, schools, galleries, museums, cafés, apartments, parks, public spaces, parking lots and so on.
The course of study is completed in one academic year, two days per week, and is composed of work sessions mixing practice and theory. Before the end of the Session, each sessionist will produce a project composed of a theoretical (in the form of an activity report) and a practical part. Moreover, during the program students have the possibility to engage in an exchange, or “residency abroad” in Paris.
The application procedure is online, accessed at http://iheap.fr/en/candidature/ and the deadline for submission is August 15, 2015.
Enclosed to this email you will find the PDF of the brochure with more information about the program and the lecturers for the upcoming Session.
I would like to thank you in advance for reaching out to your network with this call for applications.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
