PRAX 300 S038: Dialogues With: Painting

This third year course offers the opportunity for students to develop their practice within the discourse of contemporary and historical art discourse. Students will acquire a critical vocabulary for understanding their own trajectories in dialogue with the context and history of art, through group critiques, discussions of pertinent writings, and individual and group presentations of research on a variety of subjects related to their area of practice. A Dialogues course is an investigation of artistic practice premised on a student's own interest to situate their work in a broader discourse and professional realm. They will learn skills related to completing projects, making presentations, speaking in public, leading discussions, writing, and integrating research and knowledge within their creative practice. Weekly meetings will allow for critiques of self-directed studio projects, discussion of assigned readings, and presentations of research projects.

Topic: Dialogues with Painting

This third-year course offers the opportunity for students to develop their practice within the discourse of contemporary and historical art discourse of painting. Students will acquire a critical vocabulary for understanding their own trajectories in dialogue with the historical and contemporary contexts of painting, through group critiques, discussions of pertinent writings, and individual and group presentations of research on a variety of subjects related to their area of painting practice. This Dialogues course is an investigation of artistic practice premised on a student's own interest to situate their work in a broader discourse and professional realm. They will learn skills related to developing and completing a body of work, making presentations, speaking in public, leading discussions, writing, and integrating research and knowledge within their creative practice. Weekly meetings will allow for critiques of self-directed studio painting projects, discussion of assigned readings, and presentations of research projects. Both the formal and conceptual frameworks of the studio project will need to be considered and developed in relation to one another, as well as in relation to some of the larger themes and discourses around painting. In this sense students will explore how curiosity, expanding sets of references and different critical and discursive modes of inquiry enhance, enrich and propel a painting practice, as they engage with and discover ideas, references and content relevant to their individual practices.
