The Institut des hautes études en arts plastiques (IHEAP) offers participants a course of study where they can free themselves from the inherited art history of the 20th century, by investigating crucial issues of art in the 21st century, an ongoing history in which the participants will eventually take part.

Number of places : 5

Session 2013-2015

Deadline for the submission of applications: October 27, 2013

IHEAP is open to all those who have an interest in singular and extreme practices which currently and sporadically appear in the art world and elsewhere. IHEAP is for those who want to change their artistic practice or professional activity, for those who after several years of art school want to break free of alienated learning, who expect more from a school than a framework for artistic production, for those who reject art as it is commonly practiced, and finally for those who wish to work on essential issues in intimate and experimental conditions.

The course of study is completed in two years. The first year is composed of sessions work that mix practice and theorie. The second year is dedicated to the writing of an activity report. Its purpose is to demonstrate the development of the participant’s research.

IHEAP does not discriminate by age. No specific diploma is required to apply.

Study at Iheap is equivalent to a postgraduate degree. The application fee is 75 euros. Tuition is 2800 euros for two years studies.

The two steps of the entrance examination at IHEAP: pre-admission and admission.

The submission of an application is an online process, according to a simplified procedure via a registration form: http://iheap.fr/en/candidature
