In The Press: Vito Acconci in NYFA

March 29, 2011

A recent episode of  the New York Foundation for the Arts’ new video podcast series (which has also included alumnus Kate Gilmore [MFA 2002 Fine Arts]) features an interview with MFA Art Practice Department faculty member Vito Acconci in his studio. Explaining that he set up Acconci Studio in 1988 with three people in order to create work through a process of group thinking and dialogue, Acconci underlines that their projects start with a site, something he notes is uncommon with contemporary technology strategies. His focus on architecture and design lies in his interest in active participants instead of passive viewers, borne from a belief that design is, “art in the middle of people.”
