Event description

Description

EXPLORING INSTALLATION ART
Amy M. Ho
8 sessions >> Wednesday, September 13–November 8
(no sessions Oct 18 )
7:30–10:30 pm, Studio 9, $350

No prerequisite.

In this installation art focused course, students will be introduced to a variety of artists that address the surrounding environment in the design and creation of their artwork. We will explore and discuss the work of installation artists experimenting in a wide range of mediums. Weekly readings combined with brief lectures will serve as the basis for class discussion. In addition to weekly assignments, students will be asked to develop one final installation to be finished at the end of the semester. Class time will be split between lecture, discussion, critique and studio time. The class will include two off-campus field trips.
