Studio Arts, Fibres and Material Practices (MFA)
||Faculty of Fine Arts
|Field of Study:
||Fiber, Textile and Weaving ArtsFine/Studio Arts, General
||Textiles have always played a role in social and cultural history, from quotidian uses to labour movements to the first computer. Likewise, any material, whether found or constructed, contains embedded meanings. From a platform of material-based critical inquiry, graduate students in this program investigate, respond, interpret, and expand the field of contemporary fibres.
The MFA in Studio Arts, Fibres and Material Practices concentration, is an inherently interdisciplinary program of study that will allow you to cultivate your individual research focus or conceptual framework. You will be free to draw from traditional textile methods, modern tools and technologies, performance or time-based media, or invent new creative strategies. You will work under the supervision of our acclaimed faculty to thoroughly investigate materiality and form while analyzing issues and ideas relevant to your research.
