In her Master Class, Amy Smith-Stewart provided a visual overview of the long-term development of her curatorial practice as well as an overview of past and present curatorial work in a diverse range of contexts from P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center to a temporary exhibition site to the Mary Boone Gallery to a private NY collection to Smith-Stewart, her own gallery.  Students participating in this Master Class have been focusing on media critique , how artists have employed elements of advertising to create compelling artwork, and creating graphic-style self-portraits.
