Painting Seminar: Contemporary Issues in Painting

Course No. PTG 422M  Credits: 3.0
Faculty Daniel Tranberg

In preparation for the student's final BFA defense and for working beyond an undergraduate level, this course focuses in an advanced manner on the seminal issues covered over the course of the student's visual arts education. Questions of style, aesthetics, concept, meaning, and context are addressed. Particular emphasis is given to issues concerned with presentation, "framing," audience and reception. Students are expected to engage in critical discourse surrounding the work of fellow students, established artists and their own work. By the end of the term students are expected to clearly identify the subject of their work, defend their choices in relation to this subject as well as discuss reasonable expectations of audience reception. Course readings will be given in relation to these topics as well as the maintenance of a professional studio practice. Required for all 4th year Painting majors and open as an elective to any senior or with the permission of the instructor or Painting Head.
