Graduate Projects in Studio Art (MFA): Representation and Identity

  • Course Number: ART-GE 2914
  • Hours: 10 per pnt
  • Units: 1-3 (var)
  • Description: This course explores the interrelationship between representation & identity through the diverse disciplines of Psychoanalysis, Art History, Semiotics, Women’s Studies, & Post-Colonial Studies. We will trace the way these processes are channeled through a language of signs & symbols. The crucial role of visual images within each of these processes will be explored through examples taken from the readings as well as from slide lectures & films by contemporary artists. Designed to provide a set of analytical tools that can be used to interrogate & expand the artistic process, the use of artwork, writing, assignments, & group discussion will provide regular opportunities for students to respond & reflect on the topics introduced.
