Advanced Sculpture: Is that Sculpture: What’s up with that? (SCU4115.01)

Baseera Khan

What do you like, what have you experienced? Remember there is beauty in the everyday, the banal – remember there is beauty in the extreme and the unique. No matter where you fall inline on this spectrum harness the “you.” What do you think you are made of regardless of your connections to race, class, and gender? Story telling is everything and you are building a self-mythology here. This class is taught like a graduate critique course, with less of an emphasis on technique and more emphasis on building a healthy consistent art practice with abilities to discuss art theory. The class is designed for students who have already completed basic sculpture course work and are able and eager to work independently. It is expected that each of you will bring a high degree of self-motivation, significant amount of work outside of class time, while welcoming rigorous discussion in class. Students are expected to lead at least one conversation in teams and expected to complete 3 major projects that culminate into group critiques at the end of each month. We will deal heavily in the concepts of how sculpture can expand past the notion of an object form hence the title of the class: Is that Sculpture: What’s up with That!
