Fiber: Advanced Studio: Topics in Contemporary Art + Culture
Course No. FIB376/476 Credits: 3.0
Faculty Christina Cassara
Individually directed studio problems for Juniors and Seniors. This class is a combination of studio work, critique, research and discussion. Discussion topics will be selected based on both the direction of student studio work and relevant issues in contemporary art and culture. Because an inter-disciplinary practice is a central to the identity of Fiber and Material Studies, research will include both discipline specific history and the role of the discipline in creating relationships between disciplines. These discussions will directly influence critique of concurrent studio work. For Juniors, the emphasis will be on shifting from assignment based to self-directed work. Seniors will be working towards their BFA exhibition. Open elective, limited to Juniors and Seniors. Required for Junior and Senior FMS majors.
While at CIA, you'll learn from the masters through our rigorous, world-class curriculum and connect with working professionals to begin your career.
