Painting and Printmaking Art 577, When Attitude Becomes Form (Thesis Workshops)

Strongly recommended for all second-year students in the Painting and Printmaking department, this course meets for three full day workshops during Fall 2018. The course supports the development of discursive and collaboratively conceived thesis exhibitions in Spring 2019. We will examine historic and recent group exhibitions – including their contextualization through writing — as a platform for discussion, writing exercises, and group critique. Special guest artists and curators will provide insight into their own curatorial objectives and concerns. We will consider a series of topics that have arisen in exhibition making since Szeeman’s 1969 exhibition “When Attitudes Become Form,” including the exhibition of process or time-based work, theatricality, ‘networked painting,’ expanded platforms, artists’ statements and press releases, and more. Enrollment is limited to second year students in the department.
