This course will investigate the existing formats, guidelines and limitations that artists negotiate within the context of art practice. This will be accomplished through image presentations, selected readings, discussions, field trips, and visiting lecturers. The guest visitors may include a selection of: artist(s), gallery director, non-profit director or curator, museum curator, art critic, art lawyer, art fabricator, grant spokesperson, and others. Throughout the course, students will be engaging in various forms of statement writing as well as presentations on their work. Student's work may be discussed as it is relative to the presentations, and writing assignments. This course requires a separate internship component and will serve as a platform for discussion of the internship experience. Taught in NYC.
