Social Practices in Art (DA4103.01)

Robert Ransick

In this course, we examine the history of social practice and focus in on how artists are moving out of the studio and into the public realm with their work.  Social practices in art incorporates many diverse strategies that engage social forms from public discourse, activism, online networks, shared meals, street interventions, social sculpture, performance, artist-initiated organizations, regional economic development, creative placemaking, systems intervention and more. Students will work collaboratively on projects focused off-campus that critically engage topics pertinent to this moment in history. All work in this class is situated within the public sphere. There are lectures, reading assignments, studio projects and critiques during the course.
