ARTSTUDI 256V: Vital Signs: Performance in the 21st Century (TAPS 156V, TAPS 256V)

The first decade and a half of the 21st century have been transformative for performance art. On the one hand, it brought an unprecedented cultural acceptance of this art form, which is now featured in most prestigious museums and art festivals; on the other, the most recent generation of performance artists is showing a great awareness of the historicity and complexity of this form. In this class, we will try to recognize and investigate these and other prominent features of performance art produced since the turn of the millennium. We will use as our primary case studies performances that will be featured in the series Vital Signs: Contemporary Performance Art Series, hosted by TAPS in 2017-2018. The primary objective of the series is to highlight and showcase underrepresented performance forms such as experimental performance art, durational art, and body art, among others, by artists from communities that remain invisible or underrepresented in mainstream performing arts.

The primary objective of the series is to highlight and showcase underrepresented performance forms such as experimental performance art, durational art, and body art, among others, by artists from communities that remain invisible or underrepresented in mainstream performing arts. The series is curated by the Los Angeles-based artist Cassils, who has been listed by the Huffington Post as 'one of ten transgender artists who are changing the landscape of contemporary art' and has achieved international recognition for a rigorous engagement with the body as a form of social sculpture. Cassils's curatorial vision is to present established performance artists alongside emerging artists. Each quarter, a pair of artists will visit Stanford for two days (Thursday-Friday). On day one of their visit they will offer a workshop or a public performance, and on the second day they will engage in a public dialogue. The class will meet each quarter for three weeks: before, during, and after the artists' visit. This way, the students will have an opportunity to prepare for the visit, engage with the visiting artists, and reflect on their work. They will receive their grades upon completion of the class, in the spring of 2018.

ARTSTUDI 257: Advanced Sculpture Seminar

Students engage in professional sculpture (studio) practices that prepare them to apply and extend the skills, methods and techniques they have learned in previous courses, including technical and conceptual skills in woodworking, metal working, mold making, and other sculptural production. These practices involve working collaboratively, taking on short-term projects, handling an increased sculpture work flow, actively participating in regular critiques, and contributing to and showing work in a small final exhibition. Students refine their aesthetic, tap the interdisciplinary network of influences they have built, and work independently to become adept at presenting their ideas and building a portfolio to show the art they have produced to potential clients in a 'real world' professional context. Anyone interested in taking this class should apply with a project in mind that they aim to develop over the length of the course. Since these projects will require a considerable amount of more »

Anyone interested in taking this class should apply with a project in mind that they aim to develop over the length of the course. Since these projects will require a considerable amount of independent work outside class time, students should submit a 1-to-2-page description outlining what they want to focus on and a portfolio featuring some images of work they have already created in that realm. Upon careful evaluation, students with the strongest proposals will be selected. This course may be repeated for credit.

ARTSTUDI 266: Sculptural Screens / Malleable Media (ARTSTUDI 166)

In this mixed intro and upper level studio course, students will experiment with video and computational outputs embedded in physical scenarios. What new physical formats are made possible by contemporary screen and projection-mapping technologies? How can we make expressive use of LCD screens, pico projectors, i-pad arrays, and LEDs? The class will address the screen as sculptural medium by examining established artists like Nam June Paik, Michael Snow, Tony Oursler, and Pippilotti Rist, as well as exploring emerging contemporary artists tackling this medium. Prerequisites to take the class at the 266 upper level include one of the following: Intro to Digital/Physical Design, Embodied Interfaces, Media Archaeologies, Making it with Arduino, Digital Art 1, Electronic Art or permission of instructor. The intro level 166 course can be taken with no prerequisites.

ARTSTUDI 267: Emerging Technology Studio

This course is an upper level studio course featuring a different guest artist each year whose artwork makes use of emerging technologies. Course material will be based on the guest artist's area of expertise. Past examples include artists whose work focuses on Data Visualization, Live Digital Performance and Virtual Reality. Prerequisites are determined by the subject matter, and course enrollment is decided by the instructor on the first day of class. Please attend the first class for admission. For spring 2020, Emerging Technology Studio will be taught by Veronica Graham ( www.vagraham.com) on the topic of ¿World Building - inside and outside of Virtual Reality¿. Each week the course will focus on a different aspect of building a world, with an emphasis on crafting narratives that connect the virtual environment with a physical space. Veronica Graham is a new media artist and printmaker whose work spans comics, sculpture, and VR artworks. Inspired by today's rapidly changing environment, she sees her art practice as a form of world building. Each of her works is the creation of place or artifact, calling attention to how fiction is woven into our reality.

ARTSTUDI 270: Advanced Photography Seminar

Students interested in taking this class should apply with a project proposal they aim to develop over the length of the course. Since these projects require a considerable amount of independent work outside of class time, each student must submit a 1-to-2-page description outlining the subject they want to focus on, and a portfolio featuring some images of work they have already created in that realm. Upon careful evaluation, students with the strongest proposals will be selected. At the beginning of the course, all students will be provided with the necessary equipment and tools of support needed to execute their projects. The culmination of the course will be a carefully prepared final showing of work through different media - exhibition, print, virtual format - that each require their own specific lay-out and mode of presentation. This course may be repeated for credit.nnPrerequisite: ARTSTUDI 277 or equivalent.

ARTSTUDI 270A: CREATING EXPERIMENTAL CINEMA

This course is dedicated to creating at the crossroads of art and cinema. This experimental video art course will address practical filmmaking, taking as its baseline assumption the notion that experimentation is crucial to overcoming encrusted social, aesthetic, intellectual, and ideological norms. Over the course of the quarter, students will build familiarity with the the myriad components of cinematic creation, including directing, editing, camera operation, lighting, sound design, After Effects and color grading. They will create cinematic video informed by viewing and discussion of key works from the history of experimental cinema.No prerequisite required.
