This course continues with the study of visual methodologies (sign and system) introduced in Core Studio 1, and will focus specifically on form, innovation and methodology within studio practice. Working with readings, presentations, discussions, gallery and museum visits, and critiques students will explore form and inovation across 2D, 3D and 4D disciplines, understanding them relative to the underlying ideas and concepts that connect all contemporary art practices. Core Studio students will challenge collectively how we read and experience the artwork and to question the use of certain materials and methods, and to articulate the systems of communication and influences at play in the work. How do formal analysis, historical contextualization, dialogue, and reflection lead to art making? How do experience and intuition translate into expressive form? How does the imagination connect with research to activate the viewer significantly? And how does the artwork exists in the world, is active in the world, and how does it communicate. This course will also consider the students’ role as artists both individually and as a collective.
