In mid-July, students from the Yale Art School, Yale History of Art, and the Doctoral Research Network in the United Kingdom participated in the inaugural summer school at the Paul Mellon Centre in London. In collaboration with the Institute of Contemporary Art, the summer school was a unique opportunity for artists and art historians to gather together and examine the topic of this year, the artist collective.
