Notice biographique

The Graduate Art Department was officially formed in 1986 under the direction of then Dean of Humanities, Richard Hertz. Prior to 1986 the school offered a master's degree, but it was structured on a one-on-one apprentice approach. Under Hertz the program was based on both studio and rigorous theoretical coursework. Hertz came to Art Center with a doctorate in philosophy from UCLA. Hertz invited Sande Cohen, who also came from UCLA, to teach the critical theory coursework. In the early 1990s the widely known French theoretician Sylvere Lotringer joined the program. Lotringer founded the radical journal Semiotext(e), and is widely credited for introducing so-called French Theory into the American art world.

According to the 2006 brochure, Graduate Art was established in 1986.
