Topic: Decentering Painting

This hybrid course will explore the unique potential of painting in a time of globalized crisis. Responding to the topic of site and memory, our class will consider various methodologies to reframe and resist definitions of painting, from the personal to the political. We will investigate how our experiences relate to sites and how specific places become jumping-off points for creative interpretation and rupture. We will delve into our personal and collective pasts, seeking insights into how our histories relate to our present. We will consider painting as an expanded field as we find innovative ways to approach the medium.

Prerequisites: 

6 credits of 200 level Painting and Completion of Second year
