When Offered: Last offered spring 2021.
Instructor(s): S. Sarchin

This is a studio art course where the primary medium is writing. The goal of this course is to provide a rigorous and useful relationship to language as it relates to, and even functions as, art. Assigned projects may include a manifesto, a script for a performance, an open letter, a recipe, a close reading of an artwork, a protest sign, a text-based art installation, a guided meditation script, a proposal for a billboard, an interview, and an artist statement. In conjunction with these projects, we will read, view, and discuss the work of several artists, including Barbara Kruger, Glenn Ligon, Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, Adrian Piper, Frances Stark, Jimmie Durham, Lee Lozano, and Jenny Holzer. Though this class may be of particular interest to Art students, it is open to all who are interested in exploring the function of writing and language in a contemporary art context. Letter grade only. Prerequisites: one ART course.
