The annual Studio Conversations series features leading artists and critics who discuss artistic issues and practice across media and international boundaries. Supporting Moore’s MFA in Studio Art, which includes an international residency and international visiting guest faculty, the conversations are intended to address the emerging globalization and internationalization of the art world and what this means for artistic practice in the 21st century.
