The four invited guests will respond to the following two questions: 

  1. In what ways is art determined by the current economic system? 
  2. What are alternative models?

The panelists will be:

Minerva Cuevas (artist, Mexico City), Nicholas Brown (professor of English, and African American Studies, University of Illinois Chicago), Keyna Eleison (Artistic Co-director of the Museum of Modern Art in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil), Max Jorge Hinderer Cruz (writer, curator and former director of Bolivia’s National Museum of Art).

PNCA’s Low-Residency MFA is organized to be an innovative hybrid of an MFA degree and an artist residency. The low-residency program has a longer degree-completion times (3 years), flexible schedules, intensive residency periods, lower cost of attendance, and the distance-learning component, which does not require students to permanently relocate. Furthermore, the program is interdisciplinary, offering artists of all media and stages of their development the opportunity to refine their vision
