A few years later Wayne had a vivid dream in which he was holding a pencil and drawing an intricate line on a piece of paper.

DO WHATEVER THE FUCK YOU WANT
Art school: PEER REVIEW
'wait… what did I learn over the few years?'
To me, art is no longer a question of aesthetics. Art is a question of the survival of life as we know it on this planet.
At a political moment when corporate entities adeptly take on the characteristics, rights, and activities of individuals, it is a strength of artists to be able to repay in kind and realize that our agency permits us to take on some of the behaviors of the systems within which we are located.
I know what kind of schools I wanted to avoid. They were MFA programs which worked essentially on the model of therapy.
The role of visual-art’s training is to go up against constructs set by other academic realms. I hope visual arts training has no relationship to that of other disciplines.
Graduate school is basically an expensive residency program and the commitment to apply should be absolutely genuine.
...the MFA program is then modeling itself on a service and client model, aiding capitalist structures when the point of practicing art is to be able to have a critical distance from these structures that we are steeped in.
Schools are not, do not, and should not claim to be business schools or networking conventions.
Knowledge of craft is lost. This results in the wheeling and dealing of ideas, and unfortunately yields, more often than not, a poorly crafted bi-product that glorifies the calcified philosophical notions of dead men.
