ART 305 - Sculpture II

Semester Offered: Spring
1 unit(s)
(Same as URBS 305 )  ART 305, “Space and Place,” is an advanced sculpture seminar in which students deepen and expand their practices of making in three dimensions. A series of independent sculpture projects are punctuated by rigorous group critique, with a focus on supporting each student carving out the unique constellation of ideas embodied in their artistic work. In conjunction with this constant studio production, each week we engage with the work of artists and writers who offer theories of space and place, including phenomenology, site-specificity, performance, multi-media installation, architectural interventions, and public art. We analyze space and place in relation to our bodies as sites of difference, looking at the ways the built environment is always social, political, and subject to transformation. Emphasis is equally placed on the formal and the conceptual, which we discuss as fundamentally interwoven in the practice of sculpture. Gordon Hall.
