In this practicum, students learn about the diversity of visual and conceptual strategies utilized by contemporary artists to address how the shifting political climate impacts the depiction of the human body. Topics that will be investigated include: gender, feminism, race, ethnicity, class, sexual orientation, and nationality, among others. The practical application of these various strategies will be discussed with students in group and individual studio critiques. The course will include weekly readings, five studio projects including a semester long art criticism project.
