The spring 2010 semester at SVA is bringing a new slate of classes, new exhibitions in the galleries and, once again, a new installment of the Art in the First Person lecture series. The series of talks and panel discussions begins on Tuesday, January 19, at 6:30pm, when the BFA Fine Arts and BFA Visual & Critical Studies Departments bring electronic media artist Perry Bard to 133/144 West 21st Street, Room 101C, for Video in the Age of YouTube; two days later, the MFA Art Criticism and Writing Department presents Everybody is an Artist, a talk by educator and critic Boris Groys at the SVA Theatre, 333 West 23rd Street, 7pm.
Art in the First Person will continue to bring speakers to SVA throughout the semester, including Exit Art founders Papo Colo and Jeanette Ingberman (Thursday, February 4, 7pm, 209 East 23rd Street, 3rd-floor Amphitheater); poet Ann Lauterbach (Thursday, February 11, 7pm, SVA Theatre); and painter Megan Craig (Tuesday, February 16, 6:30pm, room 101C). All events are free and open to the public. For more information on these and other events in the series (which runs through April), visit sva.edu/events.
