ART-3440: Post-Studio Aesthetic

The Post-Studio Aesthetic is an experiential art history and studio course that engages students of all sensibilities and skills in hands-on postmodern thought and art making practices. Core characteristics of this framework are the blurring of art and life and the abandonment of the use of the studio in favor of making art out in the world. What are the distinctive roles of artists and audiences in this context? How do we discern art from real life? What is the relevancy of a studio practice in our contemporary world? How does an artist track the impact of his/her work? In attempting to answer these types of questions students are exposed to the lives, works, and methods of early and cutting edge postmodern artists and also to the theoretical contributions of key scholars in the fields of aesthetics and cultural studies. Learning formats include lecture, discussion, art making and art critique.
