PhD Philosophy, Aesthetics, & Art Theory
The Institute for Doctoral Studies in the Visual Arts was founded to provide education in philosophy, aesthetics, art theory, and similar disciplines related to the visual arts. The IDSVA curriculum—fusing distance learning with intensive residencies—allows working art professionals to pursue rigorous advanced scholarship without having to interrupt or abandon their professional responsibilities.
- My research focus is a continuation of my MA work regarding craft and skill and their role in the contemporary art world
- For my PhD, I am taking a theoretical approach to studying the current tension between contemporary art and craft while using interdisciplinary research in psychology, history, neurology, and economics to discover the true impact of rethinking the role of craft and skill in the art world
