Interdisciplinary Proj: Autobiography

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.
