Roski MFA Art Tour to NYC

We are the USC Roski first-year Master of Fine Arts students and we are planning an academic trip to New York City! Adrian Piper is an American artist who has inspired us for many years. We plan to travel to New York next month to experience her exhibition A Synthesis of Intuitions, 1965-2016, on view this year at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) from March 27 through July 22. It will be a true high point for us.

To make this trip possible, we need your help to raise $8000 to cover our travel expenses for the 3-day trip.

We are excited about our first cohort trip and the opportunity to see one of the most important exhibitions of this generation. We are performance artists, painters, photographers, object makers and social practitioners. Many of us have studied Piper’s work for years, and this opportunity will enhance our personal and collective practices. In addition to Piper's exhibition, we will also be using every available minute to connect with New York artists, gallery owners, and others figures in the local art community.

Launching this first trip is vitally important to us. As artists, we strive to experience - in person - art in important circumstances like this exhibition, and we always walk away influenced in ways that transform our perspectives. Traveling to this exhibition will be one of those transformational experiences.

Please help us get to New York City by making a contribution today. A gift of any amount gets us closer to Piper's show!
