Taught By: Tamar Ettun

Credits: 3

This class explores the intersections of performance art, time-based processes, and installation, with textile work. Students will engage with a variety of textile making techniques including weavings, tapestries, fiber arts, inflatables, and wearable sculptures. We will focus on the collision of traditional textile craftsmanship with global trajectories in contemporary art, through the lens of astrological cycles. Through hands-on workshops students will learn making skills such as natural/synthetic fabric dyeing, sewing, weaving, and collage. Students will implement these techniques and incorporate them into their own performative objects and installations. Students will research artists that have pushed the boundaries of textile, including: Cecilia Vicuna, Nick Cave, Ann Hamilton, to harness what they learn when creating their own work.The class will combine presentations on artists and short readings with prompt-driven projects that lead up to independent work. Collectively we will follow lunar cycles and respond through embodied movement, exercises, and creative work.

Credits: 3

This course will explore the intersection of video, installation, and artwork made with living systems. Whether through small organisms, animals, plants, or humans—we will develop work that investigates our social and ecological environment. In the first half of the semester, students will develop a variety of skills in both 4D media ranging from advanced cinematography techniques, field recording, and performance practice. Alongside, students will be asked to care for a living organism, and develop new work in dialogue with this practice. Artists practices such as Agnes Denes, Lynne Hershman Leeson, Pierre Huyghe, Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Robert Irwin, Rosemarie Trockel will be discussed alongside critical writing from thinkers such as Emanuele Coccia, Ted Chiang, and Donna Haraway.
