298DA: IntermedStudio:Gendered Sculpture
This course explores the relationships between sculpture and identity, with an emphasis on how gender functions in contemporary society. Assignments in this course engage with issues of gender, sexuality, body politics, performance, archive building, collaboration, and social justice. Students will have the opportunity to learn techniques such as sewing and fabric arts, 3D printing, using the body as a sculptural tool, transforming a variety of found materials, and documenting their work online. Discussions, lectures, readings, experimental games, and in-class demonstrations will engage with non-traditional and feminist art practices, the history of feminist art, and theories of intersectionality. By the end of the term, students will acquire the skills to create and critique a wide range of artworks through social, cultural, political, and historical frameworks. This class does not require prior sculptural skills or topical knowledge.
