66-4718 Material Social Practices


In this course, students will work with visiting mid-career and established artists to create artworks in the social realm. Students connect their art practice to research on new or experimental approaches to art activism. Social practice-based artwork includes a wide range of evolving media and concepts in contemporary art practice. It includes projects as diverse as guerrilla interventions and squat spaces, to social sculpture, and interactive media. These practices reflect important critical and conceptual trends in the field of art by engaging relational aesthetics and theories of globalism and pluralism with the intersection of art and political systems. Students will consider these varied forms of public engagement through discussion seminars and hands-on practice. Students work individually or collaboratively to consider art in its relationship to social change.
