Core Seminar 2: Form & Innov

Spring 2019

Taught By: Lindsay Benedict

Section: C

CRN: 2103

Credits: 3

Core Seminar 2 continues with the study of visual methodologies (sign and system) introduced in Core Seminar 1, but focuses specifically on form, innovation and methodology within studio practice. Working with readings, presentations, discussions, gallery and museum visits, and critiques Core Seminar 2 students explore form and innovation across 2D, 3D and 4D disciplines, understanding them relative to the underlying ideas and concepts that connect all contemporary art practices. Core Seminar students will collectively challenge how we experience/read the artwork, question the use of certain materials and methods, and articulate the systems of communication/influences at play in the work. How do formal analysis, historical contextualization, ethical positioning and critical reflection lead to art making? How do experience and intuition translate into expressive form? How does the imagination connect with research to activate the viewer significantly? And how does the artwork exist, communicate and become active in the world? Core Seminar 2 will also consider how artists work both individually and as a collective: they will be asked to share their thoughts, pleasures, challenges, working methods, ethical positions and research insights with each other. Through this discursive form of learning the students will become increasingly aware of the ever-shifting ideas and artistic possibilities that continuously affect and enable artists, their ways of working, and their output. This awareness will allow students to understand their own processes and enable them to further explore their own methods and meanings.
