ART-4010: History of Performance Art

Students explore the shifting phenomenon of performance art by examining its historical origins, as a reaction to and deconstruction of the economic and aesthetic constraints of such artistic disciplines as visual art and theater. The course explores different formal movements in performance, including body-based work, identity-based work, time-based work and storytelling. The focus is on performance as it has developed and mutated in Los Angeles, with guest class visits from innovative and leading local artists. Through reading, viewing taped performances, discussion and practical exploration, students familiarize themselves with the radical possibilities of this discipline through historical, societal, political, and economic perspectives.
