Bruce High Quality Foundation Takes Art-School Conceptualism on the Road With Teach 4 Amerika

If you see a limousine painted like a school bus rolling through your college town this month, it’s probably the Bruce High Quality Foundation (BHQF). The New York-based art collective is going cross-country to instigate serious conversations about the future of MFA education at schools around the U.S., from New York to Portland. The group, comprising a fluctuating number of anonymous members, will be modeling its Teach 4 Amerika tour and its educational interventions on pep rallies — “big public events with balloons, confetti, and marching bands,” the Bruces reveal over quasi-secret drinks at the Smile, in NoHo.The group plans to meet with art-school students as well as denizens of alternative spaces that are often shut out of the MFA conversation. “It’s to try to get them to get the ball rolling on the less institutional frame for arts education in their area and what they need locally,” the Bruces say. “So it’s moving away from the idea that we just repeat MFA systems from one place to the next. Because right now they’re all pretty much the same.”
