Medium and Materials workshops are required for BFA Fine Art students but may be taken as electives by students in other programs.

As the threshold for media production software and hardware drops, visual artists increasingly have the opportunity to work with time-based, trans-disciplinary tools. This class explores time-based media production with a focus on skills that allow students to become technically proficient and thinking media makers. The course will expose students to a broad range of works: from conventional film and video, to video installation, performance documentation, generative and interactive works. The course surveys and analyzes current trends in video and digital art practices through frequent screenings, readings, and discussions attention to the social, political and creative contexts that have informed the development and history of the medium. Along the way, we will examine a diverse group of contemporary media makers and writers whose work explores a range of cultural, critical and formal concerns. The production portion of the course explores the range of possibilities for video art production including single-channel, installation, performance, and web-based projects.

Faculty: Dean Kessmann
Tuesday 1.00 - 5.30

Listed under Main Campus -  Art/Fine Arts

This course has been designed for students who have an interest in photographic images that defy more traditional uses of the medium as an objective conveyer of visual information in a “realistic” way.  Many of us have come to accept that photographs depict the world in a realistic way.  Our language about lens-based photographs often supports their function as windows and mirrors, yet we simultaneously recognize that flat photographic reproductions, in black and white or color, are far removed from the reality that was captured on film or digital chips.  Additionally, photographs often frieze a fraction of a second out of an ever-evolving chain of events unfolding around the photographer.  We regularly discuss these contradictory views of photographs in black and white terms, that is, as either/or distinctions.  Thus, some would argue that conventional, lens-based photographs cannot be abstract because they describe in great detail the outermost, visible surface of their subjects.  At the other end of the spectrum, one may contend that all photographic images are mere two-dimensional abstractions of their three-dimensional referents and nothing more.  However, in this course, we will explore the vast space that exists between these two extreme views of photography.

In this course, students will investigate a wide variety of approaches to making photographic images through chemical and digital photographic processes.  We will discuss definitions of abstract and representational photography on a theoretical level and explore practical ways of making photographs that are firmly situated within aesthetic traditions of historical and contemporary abstract and representational art.  We will discuss whether a single photograph can be an abstraction and a representation at the same time, while simultaneously challenging ourselves to complicate our answers to this question through the creative act of making photographs that defy our expectations.

Prerequisites: Students must have a basic technical understanding and previous experience with chemical and/or digital photography (either Photo Fundamentals, Introduction to BW Photography, or Introduction to Color Photography)

 

FA 3901           Special Topic: Invention 101 - A practical introduction to invention (hybrid innovation arts, sculpture, digital fabrication)

Faculty:          James Sham
Time:              Wednesday 8:00-12:30
Location:        Gelman 402

This course gives a practical overview of how innovations have impacted society at crucial moments in history.  Students will be introduced to hands-on innovation-based problem-solving by studying both historical precedents as well as designing and building complex and original inventions.  Throughout the course, students will hand-fabricate their own prototypes using wood and other readily available building materials. This course will require a combination of hands-on studio work and reading/discussion.  Although this course has no prerequisites, students should arrive expecting to learn or hone woodshop tools and processes.  Prior sculpture experience is recommended but unrequired.  Students will utilize fabrication facilities in both Smith and Flagg.

FA 3913 / FA6290 Painting Off the Wall

Faculty: Julia Brown
Time: Tuesday 1.00 - 5.30
Location: Flagg B135

This course will explore the possibilities of painting gone “off-the-wall,” beyond the parameters often assumed for it. We will study examples of painting commingled with other creative fields such as architecture, sculpture, social practice, performance, and film/video, and create our own hybrid works. Students will complete a series of projects that explore painting in dialogue with these disciplines, as well as an independent final project.

FA 3901           Field Seminar with Mel Chin

Faculty:          Mel Chin
Time:              Thursday 9:00 AM-12:30 PM
Location:        Flagg, B-134

This seminar will explore expanded practices in public art with a special focus on issues connected to the Washington, DC area. The course will be built around the collective interests of its participants in dialogue with Mel Chin, inaugural Visiting Professor in Community Engagement. Over his long career, Chin has insinuated art into unlikely places, including destroyed homes, toxic landfills, and even popular television, investigating how art can provoke greater social awareness and responsibility. During his residency this year, Chin will continue work on the effects of lead and heavy metal contamination on communities around the country and Washington, DC. http://www.melchin.org/

This course will continue in the spring. Students may participate for the full year or a single semester.

FA 6290               Studio Visits

Faculty:                Mel Chin
Time:                   Fridays 9:00 AM - 12:30 PM
Location:             Flagg, B-134

Ongoing critical discourse about each student’s creative work through regular studio visits with the instructor, as well as one-time visits by international, national, and regional artists. This course will challenge students to interrogate and more fully articulate their individual practices.

Required for MFA in Fine Arts. Restricted to Graduate students. Advanced undergraduates may request participation with the permission of the Director of Graduate Studies for Fine Arts (Dean Kessmann).

CPJ 6020/A      Photojournalism Graduate Seminar

Faculty:          Michelle Frankfurter

Time:              Tuesday 8:00-12:30

Location:        Flagg 109

Topic: Launching (and Sustaining) Documentary Projects

This course supports the launch and development of documentary still photography projects. Using a combinations of assignments, critiques, guests lecturers, readings, field trips and workshops, students will work on a self-designed body of work as they refine the core ideas and scope of the project, potential forms of publication or exhibition, and identify an audience. Woven into the pacing of the course are examples of funding strategies and well as case studies on the balance of pursuing long-term projects and short term work.

CPJ 6020/B      Photojournalism Graduate Seminar

Faculty:          Erin Haney

Time:             Wednesday 10:00-12:30

Location:        Flagg 109

Topic: Both Sides of the Lens: examining subject/photographer relationships, roles and responsibilities This course will examine the relationship of maker and subject in visual storytelling. Using examples from the contemporary practice and archives of the African continent, we will engage with the ethics of representing people, places and ideas outside of your own. Spanning the spectrum of ‘insider’/local, foreign/international, and collaborative work, we’ll grapple with filmic, photographic, and new media archives from and about specific locations around the continent. Particular emphases include ethics, political and cultural contexts of visuals, war and crisis reporting, long-term projects, migration, the interplay of journalism/artistic/creative work and markets and circulation. Image-making will be part of at least one class project, where students will apply some of the main concerns of this course.

 

CPJ 6060/C      Photojournalism Graduate Seminar

Faculty:          Erica Wortham

Time:              Thursday, 1:00-5:30

Location:        Flagg 106—Auditorium

Topic: Shaping Narratives: The Voices and Impacts of Citizen Media and Film in Latin American and Latino Communities Whether imperfect, revolutionary, third or indigenous, the Latin America cinema has engaged key social and political debates of the hemisphere. With a particular emphasis on indigenous media from various regions of Latin America this course examines media making as a social practice enmeshed in struggles for self-representation and self-determination. To this end, grassroots and community-based media projects are explored within and against contexts of broader national cinemas, shifting our attention to the political economy of media production and distribution. We will screen a variety of genres, from classic films, social and ethnographic documentaries to recent indigenous productions, with an emphasis on Mexico, Bolivia, and Brazil. Throughout the course we will keep in mind the properties of film as a signifying practice, placing films and their making in the context of an evolving discursive field, shaped by particular social and political concerns of the time.
