Each week, SITI spotlights one of our Conservatory artists. This week, we’re happy to highlight the work of Dante Belletti.
Speaking of his own identities and the work of artists in 2017, Dante says, “It’s made me think a lot about: what is my right to make work? And what can I say that is from me and uniquely my own, that is also potentially radical and politically useful?”

This week, we’re happy to spotlight the work of Conservatory artist Sarah McEneaney.
Speaking of her work in the Conservatory, Sarah said, “Collaborating with wildly different people is a great, great thing I’m learning. I’m still learning. I don’t think I’ll ever stop learning how to collaborate.”

The political cataclysm that recently landed upon our collective heads is a dangerous call to attention but also an opportunity. We are currently facing a crisis in the guise of a future that may be considerably more hazardous than we can currently imagine. But imagination is exactly what is required. The crisis provides a unique occasion for us to re-evaluate our assumptions, adjust and engage in new ways. John F.

The Conservatory artists have just taken off for their winter break after ten weeks of training. But before she left the studio, Conservatory artist Sabrina Sng sat down to talk with SITI’s Education Manager, Megan Hanley.
Speaking of a part of her creative life that she’s proud of, Sabrina said, “I had a friend who said, ‘You’re always hiding. You’re always at a corner, or you’re behind people.’ And he said, ‘I want to see you.’ And I looked at the independent project and I was like, you know what? Maybe let’s try to do something on my own.”

Every autumn I arrange two museum visits with my first-year Columbia MFA directing students. On November 9th we were scheduled to meet at 9:30 a.m. at the Museum of Modern Art on 54th street in Manhattan. But on November 9th the world into which I woke felt decidedly different. Actually, I did not really wake up into that day because I had not slept at all. Two hours before Hillary Clinton’s lead began its long descent, I began to feel catatonic. I sensed that something distressing was on the horizon.
