FINAR-604

This class provides an opportunity for students to encounter the person and work of men and women whose significant work as artists is not generally visible in the Bay Area cultural scene. Students will also meet and interview established critics and curators to discuss the pathways artists take - or do not - to recognition. Finally the class will view videos of some masterworks of visual and performing artists (including Dennis Potter: The Last Interview and Alice Neel: a film by Andrew Neel) in order to examine the ways we are enriched by these important figures.
