The Alternative Art School

Live online classes with the world’s best artists and curators

Janine Antoni

At Home in the Body

This class will be part laboratory, part playground, part archeological dig: a place to relate, to connect, and to honor difference.

Mark Dion

Museum Culture

Museums; what are they? where did they come from? and who are they for? These are some of the questions that will be explored in this intensive sociocultural class, conducted with customary Mark Dion humor and joy.

Nato Thompson

Making a Life of Art

In this course, Thompson will address and workshop the complexities of living an artistic life. Ranging from practical issues like artistic work routines and navigating the art world.

What is the Alternative Art School?

When it comes to art, the question is not how do we make better art, but how do we make a better society? We at The Alternative Art School believe in a form of art that grapples with the lived experience of being an artist from rent to work. Rather than throwing a student out into the world hoping that the global landscape of business and art galleries takes them on, we want to equip them with the tools to consider and produce alternatives.
