This advanced, project-based course is aimed at students able to work independently in one of two broad categories of contemporary art-making: Drawing (including visual art, new media art, architecture, sculpture, and/or art theory) and Sound (composition, performance, analog or digital sound production, and/or sound studies). Together we will explore elements such as rhythm, line, space, and composition from the perspectives of sound studies and drawing, focusing in particular on the graphic mark. Students will interact with several visiting artists, and will visit working artists in their studios and observe relevant art installations and performances. Students will develop semester-long studio projects, which will be supplemented by discussions, critiques, and readings.
