This course will act as an advanced forum for visual artists with an emphasis on sculpture and its evolving definition. It will push students to question conventional ideas about contemporary art and define it for themselves. The class will challenge every student to develop a critical self-awareness about his or her own work and better understand the issues and contexts that inform art-making today. The approach will be multidisciplinary, from varied perspective, and students will further develop a personal artistic vocabulary with the source material that informs it. Individual meetings, critiques, readings, discussions, current exhibitions, and exposure to past and present modes and methodologies of art making will be used to introduce new ways of visual thinking, development, and awareness.
