2014 Grad Summer Main Session
SAGR622/Grad Seminar/01 - Art Prtce: Creativity and Sustainability | Credits 3.00
This seminar investigates the artist as an active member of society, asking graduate candidates to think conceptually and pragmatically about setting up a framework for their work after graduation. Beyond the studio, how are artists working and living in the world? How are we affecting and contributing to the socio-political climate of our local environments and our shared global networks? How can we effectively function as creative agents in our own lives and work in the expanded creative field? The course examines these questions through key readings, in class discussions and site visits with a range of arts professionals. Course readings focus on critical thinking about creative economies, and engage dialogues around labor, class and agency. For site visits, the class travels as a cohort and have unique opportunities to access creative live/work models in the field. Guests include artists, curators, non-profit founders, strategic planners, political organizers, and researchers who all draw on their visual literacy to work across disciplines.
