ART 175 PZ -Object Ecologies

Institution: Pitzer College

Description: This hybrid seminar/studio course explores contingencies of the object in contemporary sculpture. Beginning with the expanded field of sulptural practice in the 1960’s and 1970’s - movements as diverse as Postminimalism, Fluxus, and Land Art - we will examine how various artists and historians define site-specificity, and the role that objects (whether fabricated or found) play in these definitions. How are the terms “nature”, “object”, and “environment” defined in relation to human agency, and what role can/does artistic labor play in shaping these ideas? How are movements like institutional critique, social practice, and net.art expanding our understandings of site, authorship, and interconnection?

Prerequisite(s): Please check course schedule for requirements.
