Special studio art course offering for Spring 2019

ARTS 777: History and Theory of Social Practice
Mondays 2:00-5:50pm
Prof. Sholette

Art as History? Art as Thinking? Art as Research? Art as Work? The aim of this seminar is to survey, critique and historicize the theory and practice of activist, interventionist, public, participatory and community based art that operates within and across fields such as performance, urban studies, environmental science and other socially engaged disciplines. The class will focus on such questions as: Why is it useful, even necessary, to understand the history and theory of social practice art? Where should we look to find the historical roots of social practice art? Are these within the history of art, or external to it, in the broader social sphere? In an increasingly privatized society how do we define and operate within a concept of the public sphere? And how are both mainstream and alternative type cultural institutions responding to the increasing interest in socially engaged art by emerging artists? Through lectures, readings, discussions, student presentations, group activities, guest speakers and off-site visits to galleries and museums we will seek to position socially-engaged visual culture and the shifting role of the artist within an historical, ideological, and critical framework.

Special studio art course offering for Spring 2019

The Art department is pleased to offer a special printmaking course in Spring 2019 for both graduate and undergraduate students. With the instruction of experienced printmaker Lisa Mackie, this course will cover Lithography and Monotype Processes. Drawing and printing with litho plates and stones in both black-and-white and color will be presented, as well as photo processes using black-and-white laser prints as a matrix and aluminum photo litho plates. Images may be re-examined, varied, and extended through the exploration of water-based monotype mylar overlays. Catalytic assignments are presented throughout the course. Students will be asked to visually examine their concepts and allow their artwork to develop within the parameters and new territory of lithography and into mixed media. Finally, the course will teach students about the heritage, history, and technology of traditional and contemporary printmaking.
