In this course, students together with their peers and faculty discuss and critique each other’s works in progress as well as after completion. These in-depth critiques are aimed to have students understand and reflect each other’s artistic approach, ideas presented in their work, overall methodology, material and spatial realization and contemporary cultural context. The aim of the Group Critique sessions is to provide a forum for productive and respectful engagement of ideas. Students are encouraged to work towards defining a series of philosophical positions as they reflect upon on their own work and that of their peers. To support this process, faculty will introduce strategies for catalyzing interaction among group members. The Group Critiques are supported by specific texts assigned primarily by students in relation to their work and on occasion by faculty for each meeting.
