Example: ART 3015 - Installation Art: Site, Sense, Process
This course is an introduction to installation art. Students will develop projects individually and collaboratively and will explore fundamental aspects of installation art including its relationship to site and process, its connection to various conditions—be they aesthetic, spatial, historical, social or political—and its bridging of conventional art boundaries: public and private, subjective and collective, permanent and mutable. Students will utilize a range of characteristic elements and media such as: light, colour, objects, text, images, bodies, drawing, sound, narrative, gesture and performance. The presence of the viewer/visitor, the work’s relationship to time, space and material, and intersections between event, experience and documentation, will be considered.
Prerequisites as per calendar
A minor is a good way to complement your major, have your interests in another subject area recognized on your official transcript, and expand your employment opportunities. It is an optional component of your degree program that requires a smaller number of courses to complete.
