Spring 2013 Courses

MCM 0750 - Digital Art: Course OutlineSyllabusStudent Work

What would Andy Warhol's Facebook page look like? What would John Cage have done with an iPod? This introductory production course combines history, theory, and practice to explore the intersection of art and emerging digital technologies. Examples of recent student work include a dance performance lit by cell phones, a Dadaist video game, and an exquisite corpse made with Processing, a programming language for artists. We will examine and critique new media projects by various artists, as well as art historical precursors/influences. Students give presentations and produce media art projects.

MCM 1700R - The Art of Curating: Course Outline | Syllabus | Student Work

It is sometimes said in contemporary art circles that curators are the new artists. Curating involves a wide range of activities, including research, selection, commissioning, collaboration with artists, recontextualization, presentation, interpretation, and critical writing. This production seminar considers curatorial practice as a form of cultural production. Particular attention is paid to questions of spectatorship, materiality, and institutional context. Readings include Pierre Bourdieu, Hans-Ulrich Obrist and Douglas Crimp. Students give presentations and produce curatorial projects.
