Photogenic Painting
0.50 Credit(s)
Prerequisite: Minimum 0.5 credit in 300-level DRPT course and one of the following courses – Contemporary Issues: Art Today, CRCP 2B01, DRPT 2B13, INTM 2B22, PHOT 2B12, PRNT 2B25 or SCIN 2B09.
Drawing on the concept of photogenic painting as proposed by Michel Foucault and Gilles Deleuze, this advanced studio course engages students in questioning the implications of photography in research, conceptualization and aesthetics of contemporary painting practice. Working on a set of self-directed projects, students develop interdisciplinary methodologies that stress the relationship between analogue and digital imaginations, beauty and the sublime. Studio work is accompanied by critiques, readings, slide and film demonstrations, and guest artist-critics presentations.
