MFA in Studio Art: Studio Co-Requisite IV (Second Year)
ART601 MFA in Studio Art: Studio Co-Requisite IV (Second Year)3
Prerequisites: MFA Graduate Seminar in Studio Art: Studio Co-Requisite III
The MFA Studio Co-Requisite IV builds upon the Co-Requisite III seminar and formulates the final semester of the second year of a two-year MFA sequence that prepares MFA students to situate their work within contemporary art dialogues and trends. The course engenders the development of individual artistic production in relation to current thought shaping the most important international exhibitions such as Documenta, Manifesta and the myriad of worldwide Biennales of the past two decades. Through artist interviews, readings and films, students will learn from specific contemporary artists, collectives and activist groups, how they use the language of painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, installation, performance, and digital technologies, to address current issues. Group critiques will be conducted during individual exhibitions throughout the semester in which they will discuss the concepts of their own work as well as of the work of their peers.
