Course Description

In the field of contemporary art, artists increasingly require an expanded understanding of interdisciplinary practice and time-based art. Throughout this course, students engage in a series of studio projects that explore live performance, performance for the camera, and collaborative processes. Through in-class exercises, assignments, presentations, and lectures, students are introduced to the historical relationship between performance and the visual arts while developing projects that examine the dematerialization of the art object, the relationship between performer and audience, and the hyper-performativity of the contemporary subject. If students have taken a previous FINA 2195 Special Topics class with similar content, they will not get credit for this course.

Registration in this course is restricted to students admitted to the Diploma in Fine Arts.

Prerequisite(s): A minimum "C-" grade in three credits of AHIS; and FINA 1143 and 1171.
