Martha Rosler and Martha WilsonMartha Rosler and Martha Wilson in dialogue on art and politics as part of the HAD Lecture Series

The History of Art and Design Department has a wealth of activities for graduate and undergraduate students. Students may become involved in a number of these under the auspices of the Student Government Association as well as directly through the department. Currently students have come together in two groups in the department under the SGA: the History of Art and Design Student Association (HADSA) and our student-edited journal, belvedere

Through HADSA students organize trips to the New York area’s many art galleries, museums, and performance spaces. HADSA has also been vital to the development of the HAD Lecture Series, which has offered to the wider Pratt community and the general public lectures and conversations with many of the most important artists, critics, and curators in the art world today.

belvedere offers graduate students the opportunity to work on the production of an academic journal in a number of capacities. Students not only write, but edit, design, and coordinate the final publication of the journal with faculty advisement. Our first two volumes are available below.
