PNTG 225 - The Public Sphere
An introductory examination of modes of creating and critical analysis of present-day visual art practices in the public sphere with an emphasis on primary research. Through both individual and collaborative creative projects, students will engage with issues central to these practices, such as relational aesthetics, urban intervention, institutional critique, post-studio creation, and interdisciplinarity. Art works will be understood to identify and address differing audiences for varied purposes.
Completion of 24 credits for First Year Studies or equivalents, or consent of the Chair in consultation with the instructor.
