ARTS 260 - Social Practice Art

An introduction to Social Practice Art that covers a selection of practices and methodologies, including participatory art, public art, the role of research, performance, interventionist works, eco-art, political art, and community-based works. Students consider local, global, systemic, networked, and cultural contexts for their work, which might expose, solve, or complicate political or social conflicts. Issues of form, ethics, exhibition, the role of the studio, and the role of the artist in society are addressed in the context of larger discourses in 21st-century contemporary arts practice, where context is often researched prior to generating the form and content of the art work. Students are encouraged to explore practices beyond the basics; group and individual projects require both rigorous concept development and demonstrated concern with relational form.
