Want to study under artists Trevor Paglen, Mel Chin, and Janine Antoni? Consider enrolling in the Alternative Art School, a new online art education program launching this week that counts all three artists among its faculty.

“These are not just some artists, these are super-geniuses—and not just genius in the sense that they make great art!

The initial slate of course offerings, which began this week, include “Video as a Tool for Political Imagination” with Yael Bartana, and “Procedures from Shadows: Black and Indigenous Art Practice in the Brazilian Context” with Kenneth Bailey and Tiago Gualberto.
