Crit Lab 2021

Virtual Labs bring artists from around the world together on Zoom.

Spring 2021 sessions are virtual. Fall sessions will be Online, Offline, and Hybrid.

We are excited to soon be together once again in a physical space - with one another and with the artwork. We have also been inspired by how the digital space has no geographic limits, the new ways in which we can share from our private spaces, and the unique intimacy of meeting in a space without physical bodies. As we move ahead we consider the variables, and alongside the environmental concerns of travel, craft new ways of working, making, reflecting, inventing.

We are planning ahead! Dates and info for Fall 2021 will be posted mid-May.

Announcing the Crit Lab Fellowship!

This spring The Crit lab awarded the first Crit Lab Fellowship. Check out our first Crit Lab Fellow- Lauren Levine. Fellowship includes full tuition for one Main Crit Lab session. Application required.

Spring 2021: All seven Labs are currently full. 

Visit the artist pages to see what this amazing community of artists are up to.

Join our mailing list for updates on future sessions, AltMFA, Residency, and other events. Crit Lab faculty are available for private one-on-one critiques. Find out more on the faculty page

Note: Labs are curated for productive, dynamic, diverse discussion and work. Registration asks for date preferences; while your input is always seriously considered we cannot guarantee first choice. Waitlists for full sessions are held until sessions start. Each session has max 7 artists. NxtLvl Labs are organized by application and and availability.

The Crit Lab is an artist-run self-funded organization. We are committed to to keeping program costs for artists as low as possible, while paying a fair wage to our visiting artists and faculty. We offer payment plans and are happy to chat with all artists about ways to join The Lab.
