Niko Vicario (Section 01)


How does our understanding of art from the past twenty years change when we focus on the procedures and materials that constitute its specific modes of making? How does the fabrication of this art both intersect with and diverge from other forms of production, including artisanal craft, industrial automation, computer-generated design, and overseas outsourcing? In this seminar, students will conduct research projects concerning particular modes of making and the ways in which these may be compared with contemporary practices in the world outside of art.Limited to 15 students with priority given to majors and to students with previous coursework in contemporary art.  Spring semester.  Professor Vicario.

If Overenrolled: Priority to ARHA majors, then selected from class level to achieve a range of students across the disciplines.
