Prerequisite: 3.0 credits of first-year studio and 1.0 credit of Liberal Studies (including the Writing course with a passing grade of 60%).
This studio-seminar exposes students to some of the theories, issues and formal strategies that have informed contemporary art practices. The Sculpture/Installation offering of this course concentrates primarily on installation-based works but draws on a number of other media as well. Each weekly seminar explores issues and problems through some of the following forums: presentation of artists' works, text analysis, lectures and discussions, and student presentations of projects and assignments. Student projects integrate or respond to the issues and discourses presented.
Notes: Required for Sculpture/Installation Majors. Priority in registration is given to Sculpture/Installation Majors. May not be repeated in another program area for credit, this includes: CRCP 2B01, DRPT 2B13, INTM 2B22, PHOT 2B12 and PRNT 2B25.
