Berlin-Based artist, Tino Sehgal describes his productions as “constructed situations,” choreographies in which coached performers (“interpreters,” in the artist’s parlance) interact with the audience for the duration of a given show. Sehgal’s ephemeral situations have been the subject of solo exhibitions at institutions including Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2016); Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (2015); Martin-Gropius-Bau, Berlin (2015); Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney (2014); Ullens Center for Contemporary Art, Beijing (2013); Tate Modern, London (2012); the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York (2010) and Kunsthaus Bregenz (2006). Sehgal has been selected to participate in notable group exhibitions, such as 12th Havana Biennial (2015); 55th Venice Biennale (2013); Documenta 13, Kassel, Germany (2012); 9th Shanghai Biennale (2012); 8th Gwangju Biennale (2010); 4th Berlin Biennale (2006); represented the Germany at the 51st Venice Biennale (2005); and Manifesta 4, Frankfurt (2002). He was the recipient of the Golden Lion at the 55th Venice Biennale (2013).

The Graduate Art Seminar is a forum for graduate students, members of the ArtCenter community and the general public to enter into dialog with internationally recognized artists, critics, and art historians. The Seminar is a core component of ArtCenter’s Graduate Art program.

ArtCenter's Graduate Art program is based on intensive studio practice and rigorous academic coursework. The program is distinguished by its low faculty-to-student ratio that provides students with the attention and feedback they need to refine and achieve their artistic goals. Faculty and students are artists working in all genres—film, video, photography, painting, sculpture, performance and installation. A significant number of alumni have achieved national and international acclaim and often return to share their insights and expertise as visiting faculty and guest lecturers.
