Contemporary Art: Trying Out Positions

Artists have long deployed language as a kind of satellite hovering in the vicinity of their artworks, influencing their reception. The style and method of this language varies greatly and does not always match the accompanying work. This studio seminar will engage students in contemporary art theory and practice by taking up this critical aspect of its making: The artist producing language that stakes out a position in relation to their studio work. Focus will be on four artists including Kevin Beasley, Bruce Nauman, Amy Sillman, and a final artist to be determined.
