Syllabus Description:

matter in action: ART 553 A 

This class will explore critique methods from individual to group; from quick to slow; from verbal to written; from felt to thought ; from this to that(Definitely not in a binary way).  We will look at art work produced by each graduate student  with a set of different lens.These lens will be dependent on the student’s interests.  

Below is a set of short videos to watch before class begins:


The academy is not paradise. But learning is a place where paradise can be created. The classroom with all its limitations remains a location of possibility. In that field of possibility we have the opportunity to labour for freedom, to demand of ourselves and our comrades, an openness of mind and heart that allows us to face reality even as we collectively imagine ways to move beyond boundaries, to transgress. This is education as the practice of freedom. (bell hooks 1994: 207)
