This class will consider various approaches to installation-based art strategies. The course will combine readings, lectures, videos, and short exercises. Most importantly, we’ll work closely to translate one existing project into an installation. The objective of this course is to encourage broader investigations of space, place, and materiality in relationship to form and concept. Some art practices and diverse approaches to installation art we’ll consider include Sarah Sze, Nam June Paik, Felix Gonzales-Torres, Andy Goldsworthy, Ana Mendieta, Senga Nengudi, and Doris Salcedo, amongst others. Students should be prepared to work intensively during all hours of the workshop.
