Spring 2019

Taught By: Ajay Kurian

Section: A

CRN: 3732

Credits: 3

This course will explore the possibilities of sculpture and installation as ways of thinking about and through ideas, histories, forms, and materials. We will use ways of making to interrogate ways of thinking and vice versa. The results will be to attempt to find new forms of critical discernment in our landscape of information overload. How can thinking about and through art, as well as making it lead us to understanding new forms of discernment, ones that do not settle for dated truths or passing trends. Projects will be given in a series of prompts but will be largely self-directed. Reading and discussion will also figure into our sculptural investigations.

Open to: All university undergraduate degree students. Pre-requisite(s): PUFA 2230 Core Studio 1: 3D, PSAM 1073 Sculpture, or equivalent.
