About

Duke University’s MFA in Experimental and Documentary Arts celebrates the successes of the class of 2019 in MFA|EDA 2019, the program’s annual thesis exhibition, on view from March 18-April 13 at Duke and in Durham.

The exhibition continues through March and April with a series of receptions, film premieres, and artist-talks at venues including the Jameson Gallery, the Rubenstein Arts Center, Full Frame Theater and the Power Plant Gallery at the American Tobacco Campus.

The Masters of Fine Arts in Experimental and Documentary Arts at Duke University (MFA|EDA), established in 2011, couples experimental visual practice with the documentary arts in a rigorous two-year program. For more than three decades, Duke has demonstrated leadership in documentary arts, film and video, and visual studies. Drawing upon this commitment to the arts, as well as the university’s existing strengths in historical, theoretical and technological scholarship, the MFA|EDA offers a distinct learning environment that sees interdisciplinary education as a benchmark for significant creativity, innovation, and documentary storytelling. More information on the program, faculty, curriculum and application guidelines is available on the MFA|EDA website at mfaeda.duke.edu.

The MFA|EDA program, artists and thesis exhibition receive additional support from the Duke University Department of Art, Art History and Visual Studies, the Center for Documentary Studies, the Program in the Arts of the Moving Image, the Office of the Vice Provost for the Arts at Duke University, the Power Plant Gallery, the Fredric Jameson Gallery, Rubenstein Arts Center, and Kenan Institute for Ethics.
