Contemporary Practice

Wed | Sep 16-Oct 21 | 10:00 AM-11:30 AM
5 Sessions
Ages: Adults (16+) | $180 | Tony Schwensen

In this course you will watch assigned videos and read about contemporary artists, working in a range of media.  Following your own screening of and reading of interviews, behind-the-scenes, and studio visits, we will come together as a group to discuss what we've watched and read.  Expect challenging, critical, and thoughtful content and discussion. Some of the artists we will discuss are Amsterdam based British artist and filmmaker, Steve McQueen and British sculptor Rachel Whiteread.
This course will require you to use Zoom for video and audio.  Please download the free version and test your video and audio ahead of time to be sure it works. Familiarize yourself with the microphone mute (you'll want to mute your mic when you're not speaking).  You will need to have access to Netflix and/or Amazon Prime. Please reach out if you have concerns about this.  The instructor will contact you ahead of the first class to share the first assignment and to be sure you have what you need.

This course is a 6-week online discussion group with the possibility of a second session starting when this one ends.
