ART 209 - Installation Art I


Installation art is fundamental to contemporary art practice. Installation art could be made from anything and is often constituted from an interdisciplinary use of material, media, and space. This course introduces issues, methods, and concepts surrounding installation art and will explore current shifts in the definition of installation as it relates to contemporary art practice. Contextual significance of place and site will be explored through concepts such as immersion, performance, life=art, and site intervention. Installation art often uses a diverse use of media to demonstrate a concept or an idea. Students will be encouraged to create site-specific works and to explore various strategies, methods, and materials that range from everyday found objects, sculpture, drawing, painting, and new media such as video, sound, and performance. All are welcome. No previous art experience is necessary. Course Typically Offered: Every 3 years.

Prerequisite(s): None.
