ITALIC 92: Immersion in the Arts: Living in Culture, Interpreting

Interpreting, is the second part of ITALIC, a year-long course that explores the ways people make and encounter a wide range of artworks, including music and performance, the visual arts, literature, film and other media. Why do artworks affect us and how do we make sense of them? What makes it difficult to describe works of art and how can we do this well? How do our individual experiences influence our responses and interpretations? To address these questions in the winter quarter of ITALIC, we will read texts by such thinkers as Roland Barthes, Georg Simmel, and Roman Jakobson and attend various exhibitions and performances on and off campus, including a performances of the internationally-recognized Batsheva Dance Company at Memorial Auditorium. In conjunction with a specially-commissioned artwork by Mark Dion at the Cantor Arts Center, we will consider how contemporary artists are re-interpreting museum collections and think of curation as a form of art-making. Again, ITALIC will enhance its academic endeavors with art-making in section and in a two-week practicum with Marisa Galvez on Performing Trobar, which engages students in the literary and performative modes of troubadour lyrics.
