This three-week fieldwork studio in Marfa, Texas, seeks to expand contemporary discourses on social practices and politics in art. Led by instructor Shaun O'Dell, It offers a unique opportunity for students to gain an understanding of the dynamics of art in public spaces and its impact on communities.

Transformed by the legacy of Donald Judd, Marfa has become one of the most vibrant art hubs in the United States: a place where the art world meets, galleries emerge, and a cultural industry has arisen. Students from CCA, the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, and the Dutch Art Institute collaborate in the research, development, and execution of projects.

Prerequisite: completion of sophomore level and instructor approval (3 credits)

For undergraduates, this course satisfies a studio elective, upper-division Interdisciplinary Studio, or Interdisciplinary Critique.
