Q. How is a Fine Arts Complex different from a Museum or a Gallery Space?
A. FAC 1101 supports critical programming in the arts, art research and other services that are not regularly provided for by other instituitons. This includes, but is not limited too, career counseling, research fellowships, invitations to lecture, the chance to engage in peer review critiques, and regular opportunities to meet with visiting artsits and curators. The FAC offers museum quality programming on a more intimate scale while being able to support critical exhibitions that may fall outside the interests of the commercial gallery system.
Q. What is the relationship of the FAC to other Art Institutions?
A. The FAC receives regular input from other arts organizations with regard to its programming through an advisory board. The FAC can also act as a partner institution for exchange shows, visiting artists and guest lecturers. By cultivating institutional partnerships with art professionals who have a deep knowledge of contemproary curatorial practices the FAC aims to continually expand the reach and breadth of its operations. By working with individuals at the forefront of today's culture the FAC aims to cultivate an open dialogue about local, national and global trends in curatorial practice.
