Finishing School


Finishing School (FS) is a socially-engaged artist collective that explores an expansive range of subject and media territories. They conflate praxis, play, and activism and seek to engage audiences through various participatory models. FS produces interdisciplinary actions, installations, workshops, graphic design, studio art, performance, and new media. They have presented work throughout the United States and internationally. FS was established in 2001 and is based in Los Angeles.

Recently, FS has produced projects for the Hammer Museum’s Venice Beach Biennial, the 2010 California Biennial, Engagement Party: a three-month residency program at MOCA, Living as Form: a 20-year survey of social practice for Creative Time in New York, The Contemporary Museum in Baltimore, and a site-specific commission for DFLUX in Detroit, MI. FS has also presented projects internationally in The Netherlands, Switzerland, Thailand, England, Spain, Mexico, Brazil, and Italy.
