Site & Intervention: Critical Practices
0.50 Credit(s)
Site & Intervention challenges traditional notions of how space can have an impact on artwork by intervening on public and other spaces.

How do people respond to artworks that are located outside of the museum or gallery? This studio course explores site as a material that contributes meaning to an artwork, and asks how art can have an impact on public spaces and the individuals who experience it. This course investigates the impact that site has on a work of art through the histories of land art, performance art and public art projects. Current discussions of place, community, networks, virtual space, interventionist projects, relational works, and street art are included.
