The Crit Lab is excited to announce the first Crit Lab AltMFA, a virtual 4-day intensive of visiting artist lectures, interactive virtual collaborations, and faculty-led group critique. Building on the language and rigor of the Crit Lab, AltMFA expands this critical community of noteworthy contemporary art topics and discourses. AltMFA is designed for working artists at every level and background, with or without a degree, who are serious about their work; artists hungry for critique and lively, in-depth discussion with insightful, sensitive faculty. The Crit Lab AltMFA is a space for working artists outside academia to come together in radical optimism and rigorous dialogue, in an act of hope over destruction.

The full, four-day experience is built to be intense, cumulative and immersive. You will have exclusive access to all of the programming and content of the weekend; you will also, and perhaps more importantly, undergo an experience akin to a residency. The sustained contact of artists thinking and creating together over time generates unexpected connections where new ideas are born and flourish. This magic links us as a community and nurtures our individual practice.

AltMFA Faculty: Founder Patricia Miranda & Co-Director Gaby Collins-Fernandez.
Jonathan Van Dyke, Nicole Archer, Caroline Wells Chandler, Meena Hasan, Shervone Neckles, Chris Kaczmarek, Andrea Kantrowitz, Angie Brew, Lucinda Bliss, Amy Theiss Giese, Jason Stopa.
