UACC 244 Collaborative Studio: The Democratic Multiple

1.5 - 3 credits undefined hours
200 level undergraduate course

Beginning with movements like Dadaism and Fluxus, modern artists have tried to subvert the traditional systems of exhibition and commerce by embracing utilitarian processes and venues to bring their work to a broader audience. These very processes have influenced and shaped art both physically and theoretically, bringing legitimacy to print, ready-mades, public art, and other non-traditional mediums. This course will focus on the multiple, and the technical and conceptual possibilities of creating editions of images and objects. Students will use offset lithography, molding and casting in clay, and screenprinting in their assignments to engage the community. Artists such as the Guerrilla Girls, Shephard Fairey, Yayoi Kusama, and Andy Warhol will be looked at, and field trips to local historical and cultural institutions will be included.

Collaborative Studio engages students in cross-disciplinary and collaborative processes, building links and connections across the disciplines through diverse cultural experiences, critical writing and discussion.

Requires completion of 24 credits.
This course is not repeatable for credit.
