Adv Practice: Artist's Books +

Spring 2022

Taught By: Amber Braverman and Sreshta Rit Premnath

Section: A

CRN: 5047

Credits: 3

This studio driven course focuses on the book as a form of artistic exploration. Students will learn the practical skills necessary to lay-out, print and bind publications through workshops and demonstrations, while also engaging with the conceptual questions that inform each project. Approaches ranging from handmade, DIY publications to more involved print and web publications will be encouraged in individual and group projects developed by students over the course of the semester. We will draw on examples of small edition artist books that consider the book as an art object. We will also learn about artist-run periodicals from the 1960's through the present including Third Text, M/E/A/N/I/N/G, LTTR and The Thing Quarterly to consider a range of publication strategies that could serve as inspiration for new projects. We will visit artist studios, archives and bookstores to see the many approaches to books and journals being made today by artists and writers.

Fall 2021

Taught By: American Artist

Section: A

CRN: 5898

Credits: 3

In Net as Material we will consider how the Internet becoming mainstream has permanently changed the way that art is produced. Through social media, crowdsourcing, circulation, appropriation, virality, and indefinite output, it has shifted what is possible, and what art means. How have artists created their own cultural institutions, made themselves artificially famous, taken their racial identity to auction, produced thousands of works of art in little to no time, and used virality to disrupt social norms, all through the use of online space? We will study practicing artists including Mendi & Keith Obadike, Marisa Olson, Seth Price, Devin Kenny, Jayson Musson, Aria Dean, Hito Steyerl, Artie Vierkant, Amalia Ulman, and RAFiA Santana who range from the early days of net art to the present, that employ online space in creative ways. We will then use processes unique to online space to create original works of art, through performance, digital media, photo, video, critique, and social practice.
