DATES: June 29 – July 3, 2015
SKILL LEVEL: IV (Portfolio review required.)
CONCEPT: This workshop includes daily group discussions based on readings, individual critiques with the instructor and group critiques with all participants. The primary topic is the sustained exploration of theoretical debates that run through the critical discourse of contemporary art, and how participants access that discourse. In particular, we examine critical thinking and studio practice through the lens of Lyotard’s, The Inhuman.
MEDIA & TECHNIQUES: This course is designed for artists working across a broad range of interdisciplinary media, including painting, sculpture, installation, video, sound, performance, and social practice. Students bring one example or their work if possible, and a digital portfolio of their current studio work. Participants conduct a modest amount of new studio production if inclined, but it is not required.
ACTIVITIES: We learn through seminar-style discussion of reading assignments as well as individual critiques.
FACULTY: Craig Drennen is represented by Samsøn gallery in Boston and Saltworks in Atlanta. His work has been reviewed in Artforum, Art in America, and The New York Times. He teaches at Georgia State University, served as dean of the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, and is on the board of ART PAPERS magazine. www.craigdrennen.com
