For the past decade, NEXT has showcased the work and skills of Corcoran School students. Held every spring as an end-of-year thesis and capstone show, NEXT gives GW and the DC community the opportunity to see the latest in contemporary art and scholarship. This year the Corcoran is launching a festival format to broaden the depth and breadth of the school’s diverse programming, with performances, exhibitions and symposia across campus. The festival offers an opportunity to highlight the school’s dynamic programs and cultivates more interdisciplinary partnerships among the students and faculty.

Attendees will be able to view and critique the vast displays of the end-of-year projects and appreciate the fine arts, dance performances, musical pieces and more that the students have to offer.
