Prerequisite: This course requires a minimum prerequisite of 1.0 credits of First-Year studio curriculum.
Art & Design in the Social Sphere is a first year interdisciplinary course that is co-taught by a designer and a multidisciplinary artist. The course investigates how artists and designers impact and engage with society. Through research, readings, and the production of studio work the course introduces students to the history of art and design activism and how creativity can contribute to social change. Projects such as engaging in street interactions, public works, published media works and wearable products are some of the ways students will engage and reflect on the socio-political impact of art and design practices.
