Spring 2019

Taught By: Phoenix Lindsey-Hall

Section: A

CRN: 4897

Credits: 3

Ceramic Sculpture will cover a range of concepts, traditions and techniques that are specific to the disciplines of both ceramics and sculpture. Projects will revolve around the topics of space, structure and form and the development of ideas. Techniques and processes including hand building, surface treatment and glazes will be explored. Clay is a subtle material allowing an exchange between the medium and the self. It's rich history provides a backdrop to frame contemporary investigations into ritual, objecthood and artistic expression. Students are encouraged to experiment with a range of strategies, including installation work, large construction, and experimental techniques.

Adv Prac: Photo & Performance

Fall 2018

Taught By: Joy McKinney and MarieVic Vic

Section: A

CRN: 5479

Credits: 3

This advanced, studio-based course will approach photography and performance as forms of daily practice that each explore our corporeal existence and the repercussions of both having a body and being seen as a body. Performance, or the live event, has been a continuous element of art practice throughout most of the 20th century but our evolving technologies of sound and digital recording devices have radically impacted our understanding of performance as a medium of disappearance. We will discuss the writing of Peggy Phelan, Andre Lepecki, Malik Gaines, Fred Moten, Lynne Tillman and Adrian Piper to deepen our understanding of various historical genres of image construction as they relate to performance and notions of liveness. We will visit the photography collection at the New York Public Library as well as seeing relevant exhibitions and performances. This course takes an interdisciplinary approach to making work but will focus on production in photography and performance.
