Graduate Projects in Studio Art (MFA): Autobiography

  • Course Number: ART-GE 2919
  • Hours: 40
  • Units: 4
  • Description: Picasso famously said: “Art is the lie that tells the truth.” Students will read & discuss texts exploring such topics as personal myth/legend & fictionalized confession. Questions of authenticity & personal revelation will be discussed as they relate to contemporary art practice. Students will complete three studio projects that reflect these & related issues. Because this is an interdisciplinary studio course, any medium, e.g., painting, photo, performance, installation, video, sculpture, drawing, digital, is acceptable as a means to explore class content. Regular visits to galleries are not only encouraged, they are expected.
