MA Studio Art Projects: Seeing and Making

  • Course Number: ART-GE 2816
  • Hours: 10 per pnt
  • Units: 1-3 (var)
  • Description: This course examines the processes that inform how one makes the object and its connection to the visual. The goal of the course is to help the student sharpen his/her point-of-view and to develop constructive motivational tools. To aid in the process we will address the conflict between such binaries as: art and craft, art and ideas and the social and physical space of art. Our method will include individual studio meetings, group critiques, presentations and exhibitions of art. Readings and exhibitions will be assigned according to students’ particular research needs. They may include; Philip Fisher, "Making and Effacing Art"; Craig Owens, "Beyond Recognition: Representation, Power and Culture” and James Hillman, "The Dream and the Underworld", as well as student suggested readings.
