The Photography concentration of the MFA in Studio Arts program provides an opportunity to develop an advanced body of professional work that reflects the shifting formal and conceptual concerns of contemporary photographic practices. The program acknowledges photography as a traditional discipline with a distinct artistic, technical and historical identity, and encourages you to integrate this knowledge with current practices in unique ways that extend to digital photography, time-based work, projection and installation. You will benefit from proximity to esteemed Montreal institutions and artist-run centres such as Occurrence, Vox and the biannual Le Mois de la Photo, a major international photography event.
The intensive two-year residency allows you to pursue studio investigation. The core studio course focuses on participants’ individual practice. You will meet weekly under faculty supervision, providing ample opportunity to present work and receive critical commentary and feedback from peers, theorists and professional working artists.
In additional to regular photography facilities, MFA students in this area of study also have access to the graduate photography lounge and Hexagram’s state-of-the-art production equipment and digital printing facilities.
