Suggested Studio Elective Course
Instructor: Sarah Doherty
Concrete Culture is a course that first and foremeost enables students to examine existing and historical contextual urban structures that become the foreground or inspiration for site specicic work and exploring the role of art in the context of the city.
Students specifically produce independent project based works. Each semester the course explores a relevant timely topic and encoourages one project based on that subject. This year, it will be exploring the east-west axis of the city in contrast to the north-south axis and the numerous issues that arise within this geographic delineation of the city. Additional attention will be introduced to the urban issue of "root shock" when communities become dissolved because of revitalization, students will also have the opportunity to produce works in vacant properties.
Students will develop projects in whatever medium is appropiate for the works they conceive, but additionally will learn how to work with concrete as an artistic medium. Prerequisites can be waived for interested grad students.
