INSTALLATION ART: INTERRUPTIONS, INTERVENTIONS + ILLUSIONS
6 sessions >> Wednesdays, March 29-May 3
6:30-9:30 pm, Studio 10 , $275
Installations can be thought of as concerts as they involve many participating parts – space, perception and material. In this course, we will discuss the concert ecology of installation work and its ability to transform perception through interruptions, interventions, and illusions. Class time will be dedicated to completing installations based on your personal and conceptual interests around the course ideas. We will focus on using everyday materials for installations. As you work, we will have time for individual and group discussion and we will spend time looking at contemporary artists operating in similar contexts.
