FINAR-604

This seminar is open to all graduate fine arts students. Along with relevant readings, discussions, and visiting artist presentations, the course is intended to sharpen students' analytic and verbal skills in relation to both their individual practices and the work of their peers. Intensive group critiques will focus on individual research and exploration with an emphasis on how the work is experienced by viewers, relevance to other contemporary work, as well as the relationship between the maker's intent and the audience's experience. An underlying current of the seminar will include discussions centered on the shape and sustainability of a lifelong creative practice.
