ART H 336: Introduction to Performance Art: Explorations in Form and Practice

This course will introduce students to key themes in contemporary performance art. While we will ground each unit in art historical debate, the course is primarily focussed on contemporary practices and as such will include regular “performance research” exercises and in-class Skype visits with contemporary performance artists.

ART H 456/556: Sustainability and Ephemerality in Contemporary Art

James Lovelock, known for having co-created the Gaia hypothesis with Lynn Margulis, was recently quoted as saying that “saving the planet is a foolish, romantic extravagance.” This course examines how perspectives such as Lovelock's reorient artistic production in the 21st century, with particular attention to debate surrounding the so-called ‘anthropocene.’ Students are expected to engage with the course “research-creationally” – bringing scholarly attention to arts practice and artistic attention to academic scholarship.
