Description

This course offers an in-depth exploration of three-dimensional practice. The focus will be on extending the range of object-based art. Projects will involve combining materials, using alternative materials and processes and employing contemporary formats including installation and site-specific work.  Basic sculptural processes such as carving, casting and welding will be revaluated for new potential.  Figurative, abstract, architectural and conceptual approaches will be considered. Students will be encouraged to explore new territory while refining and developing their critical and technical skills. Contemporary critical approaches will be introduced through readings and visual presentations.

Requisite: ARHA 214 or permission of the instructor.  Limited to 14 students. Spring semester. Visiting Lecturer Culhane.
