NMSA 312: Performance Art

This course facilitates a broad skill and technical level for students interested in focusing on or incorporating performance in their work. Through classroom workshops, exercises, readings, and discussion, students gain a thorough understanding of Performance Art and its implications. Students will experience a range of performance practices, some of which engage live audience or public arenas and video and other mediums within a gallery setting. Students develop a concept, thematic/subject area into clear and concise project proposals and public engagement. Students develop informed and critically engaged artworks, experiences or presences, including experimentation with form and sensitivity to social contexts. Students will be required to keep a record of their processes and choices during the production of their work, so that after critique, their methodologies can be shared. This course elucidates performance strategies and supports students exploring performance in relation to their own divergent practices.
