Art School Interviews is an ongoing project that examines the prescribed language used in art institutions. The project grew out of a curiosity about how and why linguistic patterns emerge in critique settings. Are they particular to those trained in the arts? Or is there an assumed way artists are meant to speak and present themselves? Images were sourced from the Temple University archives, and are images of students who attended art schools in Philadelphia during the 60's and 70's. Volunteers from their late teens to their mid sixties coming from a range of vocational and academic backgrounds were paired with these images, and were asked to construct an artist profile for the individual in the photo. These individuals were then interviewed as if they were the artist in the photograph, using questions Kuykendall often hears in critique and interview/application settings.
