Topics 2D: Other Spaces

Spring 2022

Taught By: Peter Rostovsky

Section: B

CRN: 5239

Credits: 3

Painting has long sought to capture other spaces, whether they are threshold zones, fantastical landscapes, sites of difference, or hidden aspects of the everyday. This class offers students the chance to explore territories both real and imagined through discrete painting projects that connect to their unique interests. Drawing inspiration from Michel Foucault, N.K. Jemisin, J.G. Ballard, and artists like Julie Mehretu, Vilhelm Hammershøi, and those working in illustration and the popular arts, the class encourages students to both imagine and observe more keenly while learning the materials and debates of painting. Through a series of readings, studio visits, field trips and critiques, the class will explore the other spaces that painting makes legible while revealing the otherness of our own.
