Section: 01  

In this interdisciplinary studio course, we make work that traverses traditional disciplinary boundaries in order to develop a methodology that prioritizes questions of context, material, and theme. Building on the history of experimental and avant-garde practices of the 20th and 21st centuries, work in this course may take the form of installations, performances, videos, texts, participatory and collaborative projects, site- and context-specific works, and other as-yet undefined forms.

Our work will not be defined by adherence to any specific discipline or genre. In this way, the course serves as a springboard for each student to develop a relationship to contemporary interdisciplinary practice as well as an opportunity to explore, collectively and individually, pivotal theoretical frameworks that have shaped the field. Successful completion of the course will provide students with a solid foundation for experimentation in the expanded field of contemporary artistic practice.

Prerequisite: Students must have successfully completed an Introductory or Intermediate level Studio Arts course.
