Academics . Sculpture + Expanded Media . Overview

Sculpture + Expanded Media

At CIA, sculpture + expanded media can come down from the pedestal to encompass installation, performance, and digital art as well as traditional object-based work. Explore the creative potential of material, space, and interactive and time-based forms in order to create innovative work that’s important to you. Engage your mind and your hands in courses that present both theory and practice; conceptual development and hands-on work. Investigate strategies for combining traditional materials and processes with installation, time-based art, hybrid media, and performance.

In the Sculpture + Expanded Media major, you’ll hone a set of construction skills, working with wood, fabricating with textiles and metals, 3D modeling, casting, sewing, making molds, assembling, and building. And you’ll have opportunities to work in media such as photography, drawing, video, and printmaking with a focus on how these will influence your professional practice as a sculptor.

All courses in the Sculpture + Expanded Media major offer you an introduction to the history of your field. You’ll find your own way to integrate the history, present and future into your work. The three-year program builds on this search to find your place and your point-of-view, and to determine what influence your work will have in social, ethical, and cultural contexts.

This studio perspective will be supplemented by ideas from visiting artists, scholars, and crafts people who introduce differing interpretive methodologies and viewpoints. Sculpture Department visits to local museums, galleries and collections, and road trips to major exhibitions such as the Carnegie International, the Whitney Biennial and the Armory Show will be integral to your broad education.
