Sculpture Critique

Saturdays 3 - 5pm

Course Description

Registration is closed for this class.

Feel free to contact us with any questions.   

This course examines contemporary sculpture through the concept of criticism.  Critique will be enacted and examined as a site of discourse that highlights particular questions around the production and reception of sculpture as an ever expanding mode of contemporary art practice; while also noting the semantic openings and limitations that arise when we discuss ideas around sculpture today. 

Sessions are comprised, in part, of group discussion of short texts that speak to current and historical concerns in sculpture, as well as the critique of participants' artwork.  The course will also include guest speakers, field trips, and input from the participants.
