About Sculpture Seminar II

This studio-oriented seminar explores major sculptural developments and concepts of the 20th Century, especially early modernism and its antecedents through the 1960s. Site visits to museums and galleries are supported by illustrated lectures and readings that emphasize the connections between the conceptual and physical history of sculpture during these periods and its contemporary relevance. Coursework includes group discussion and written assignments. 

Student Learning Objectives:

- Identify and discuss developments and discourses at the foundation of contemporary sculpture, and use this discussion to thoughtfully consider their current place as artists.

- Demonstrate an understanding of the role of writing in one’s art practice through their own writings and relating their writing to their current body of work.

- demonstrate an understanding of context and space with the self-curated display of their own work.
