Core Seminar 3: Site & Context

Fall 2018

Taught By: Lindsay Benedict

Section: B

CRN: 2062

Credits: 3

Having acquired a basic understanding of the field, different media, as well as methodologies in the Second year, this Core Studio will move on to discuss the contexts and environments in which art is conceived and engaged. Looking beyond their studio practice, students will explore the implications of location, audience and constitution of a public from the position of an artist. Through readings, projects in the field, and short writing and presentation assignments they will be introduced to the concept of site-specificity as well as to the varied field of “public art.” Their discussions of a Public and immediate forms of display will expand to a larger discussion of the historical, cultural, social, or conceptual contexts that support and create meaning within an artwork. Students will also be asked to consider the contexts created by their choices of distribution, from museum-based exhibitions, to public interventions, print publications and Zines. This investigation will be supported through guided field trips and discussions of how the works they produce in Core Studios might also be reconsidered in relationship to public, audience, and site.
