Call for Applications: The 2014 Art & Law Program

Online Applications for the 2014 Art & Law Program (“The Program”) are now being accepted. Online applications are due October 4, 2013.


Going on its fifth year, The Art & Law Program is a semester-long seminar series with a theoretical and philosophical focus on the effects of law and jurisprudence on cultural production and reception. An examination of how artistic practices challenge, rupture, and change the apparatus of law completes The Program. The Program aims to attract qualified individuals in the areas of visual art, architecture, writing, curating, and law. This list is non-exclusive. Artists with new genre and post-studio practices are especially encouraged to apply, as are legal scholars interested in the cultural effects of law. The Program takes place in New York City from mid-January to early May and is held in collaboration with Fordham Law School. Seminars are held every Tuesday night at Fordham Law School from 6-9pm.

945611_191193707700644_302468888_nParticipants of The Program will meet once a week at Fordham Law School to discuss readings and visual materials with artist/lawyer Sergio Muñoz Sarmiento, and/or with a guest seminar leader. Seminar leaders assign required readings and present ideas and materials relevant to their areas of practice. As an added and unique component of The Program, participants will have the opportunity to meet individually with the program director and the opportunity to work one-on-one with Fordham Law School students on research topics relevant to the Participants’ respective projects. The Program seeks qualified and self-motivated individuals with a genuine and rigorous attraction to critical thought and debate, and who seek to challenge their respective practices. With this in mind, there is no pre-established exhibition which concludes the program. Rather, participants are highly encouraged to produce – on their own – a static or non-static material with what is learned, or unlearned, during and after the Program.

Online applications are due October 4, 2013. Selected participants will be notified by October 25, 2013. Although there is no application fee, there is an $800 participation fee.
