Image Ecologies

Tuesdays, 7pm

Course Description

This class will be based on screenings of recent moving image work that offers multiplicitous impressions of the world as a whole rather than as composed of separate natural and social realms. Formally these artists combine heterogeneous production processes, found imagery, and artistic disciplines within a single work. Students examine the formal and conceptual qualities of film and video and learn how contemporary artists are exploring ecologies of images. The class will consist of short screenings and discussions of readings. Artists include Trisha Baga, Camille Henrot, Mark Leckey, Sterling Ruby, Jordan Wolfson, and more. This is an eight week discussion-based seminar running from mid October to mid December, and will be capped at around 25 participants. 


First Class: Tuesday October 28th, 7pm
