Show and Tell: Sculpture will focus on the aesthetic and conceptual frameworks surrounding “sculpture” focusing on group dialogue and discussion of particular works and projects. Every other week a visiting critic will join the class to give a presentation about an aspect of their work, and to discuss the work of 3-4 students. The following week the class will meet for a round table discussion about a specific topic and/or reading, and workshop the projects of 3-4 students. Students will be asked to attend every class and each student will have a chance to discuss their work with a visiting critic and/or more intimately with fellow classmates. Visiting critics will be announced the first day of class.

"Collage and the Grammar of Images II" is a studio that class which will veer wildly between a focused exploration of 'collage' as a specific artistic discipline with a specific history, and a broad application of 'collage' as a metaphor for the constant processes of theft, revision, dis-assembly and recombination through which culture takes its various shapes.
Topics will include: etymology, historical revisionism, film language, monsters, and all kinds of magic (there's a heavy emphasis on magic).
Classes will begin with a brief lecture and end with critique-style group discussions. But during most of class time participants will attempt their own acts of speech in the Grammar of Images - by making collages.
Eventually we'll make a book.

Comedy Sketch Book is a course that will critically examine sketch comedy through the lenses of theoretical frameworks on humor and the history of contemporary performance art. A follow-up to fall 2014’s Humor and the Abject course, we’ll build upon concepts explored previously, though having taken Humor and the Abject previously is not a prerequisite. A combination of viewing and discourse will expose participants to a broad range of approaches to sketch comedy and the vocabularies and methods to dissect and contextualize them. The course will run the first half of spring semester, and participants should be prepared to allocate time outside of in-class meetings to view and read various assigned materials. We’ll compare and contrast mainstream and experimental/fringe approaches in the interest of understanding complex relationships between form and content across multiple media platforms and contexts.
