Arts Writing Workshop

Spring 2021

Taught By: Constantina Zavitsanos

Section: A

CRN: 8774

Credits: 4

Arts Writing Workshop meets weekly to view and collectively discuss artworks alongside readings in arts commentary, international journalism, artist interviews, and expanded media in the larger discursive field of contemporary arts. Visual arts, film, video, performance, dance, and music will be contextualized within both historic and popular cultural production. This is a focused writing course in which students will compose a series of short texts first in descriptive formal and material analysis, in social political, historical, or journalistic analysis and then in poetic, theoretical, or experimental synthesis as well. Written works will be shared in small groups for collaborative workshopping and review. Select meetings with visiting artists and virtual field trip tours of shows, events, and studios will be a highlight. Arts Writing Workshop meets synchronously on Wednesdays by Zoom and additional experimental online meeting platforms; Mondays are reserved for asynchronous study on Canvas in which students may engage course materials at their leisure each week. This course can satisfy an Arts program LINA (Interdisciplinary Arts) requirement, or a Visual Studies elective requirement.
