Further examples of the academy and the market jumping in bed together. Which aspect of this is strangest:
A) The fact that this Goldsmith’s MFA 2007 Survey opens a full two semesters before the school’s degree show?
B) The fact that the MFA 2007 Survey is taking place in Chelsea, Manhattan, not Chelsea, London?
Apparently, Goldsmith’s does not share Columbia’s concerns about exposing young students to the marketplace.
