Photography in the Expanded Field (PHO4111.01)

Elizabeth White

This studio/seminar invites students to explore some of the various ways photography has been used by artists over the last fifty years, including intersections with video, installation, conceptual art, performance, and collaborative social practices. Assignments encourage experimentation with formal and conceptual strategies while readings provide historical and theoretical context, raise critical questions about labor and authorship, and examine the legacy of medium specificity. A range of possibilities for the production, exhibition, and distribution of creative work will be discussed. Class time will include slide presentations, group critiques, and discussions around socio-political and artistic considerations in contemporary photo-related practices. Students can choose to pursue creative or analytical final projects.
