This is an interdisciplinary critique-based course designed for advanced Art Studio majors. Our primary aim is to provide a structure for the development of each student's thesis work, research, and thinking as it evolves over the course of the semester. Through extensive in-class discussions and reviews, we devote a substantial portion of time to the presentation and discussion of student work. As a major component of the course, each student will install their work in one of the exhibition venues in the Center for the Arts in preparation for thesis exhibitions. We devote time to the discussion of critique methodologies, installation strategies, readings in critical theory, visiting artist lectures and presentations, and, if possible, visits to contemporary exhibitions in the area. The course will additionally assist students in the elaboration of their artist statements, portfolio, and documentation. Finally, we will develop a collaborative project, such as publication or a portable exhibition. The course is designed as a complement to the Art Studio Senior Thesis process and is an elective for Art Studio majors.
