Art in Alternative Spaces
An examination of the evolution of the alternative spaces in New York City beginning in the 1950s through today. The course critically investigates varying definitions to the term “alternative” by artists & administrators, & considers the impact of new art forms/new ideas upon the mainstream art world. Through site visits, students learn more about the work of emerging, underrepresented & more established artists whose art reflects cultural & stylistic diversity. Meetings with key staff members give insight into how administrators serve both their artists & constituency & respond to the changing needs of their communities.
