Sections: Identity Thr Art Pract (Fall 2020 SC-101-M)

SIMPSON COLLOQUIUM 101-M Identity Thr Art Pract
In this course students will investigate contemporary art practices, especially the way in which newer art has been used to investigate, document and illustrate political, social and/or historical concerns. Various art media will be reviewed such as mixed media installation, video installation, photography, and performance art. Specific contemporary artists who practice this media will also be studied. After the general review of contemporary art practices, the bulk of the class will consist of each student learning to think about and represent concepts in open-ended, abstract ways. Students will then use contemporary art media (sound installation, abstract video, filmed performance, etc.) to give body to their ideas. The overall culmination of these practices will result in a larger, final work of art created by each student that represents their ancestral history, family background, and life experiences as means toward defining personal identity.
