Art 671, Materials and Facture
EDG36 123 T 1:30 – 5:20

This class focuses on the hands-on specifics of sculptural practice as well as the critical discourse surrounding issues of facture and materiality in three dimensions. The class explores the multiple media and techniques in the lexicon of contemporary sculpture while being informed by various readings and writings by artists, critics, and theorists, so as to map out and delve into the conceptual and physical aesthetics of “why” and “how” works are conceived and actualized. In addition to field trips to working art foundries, material mills, and museums and galleries, the class partakes in an iron pour. Brent Howard
