ARTS 237 - Portable Radicals: Soft Sculpture

Credits: 4 This Spring Term course will explore moveable soft forms and lightweight structures through an expansion of sculpture that includes movement, activation and protest. We will investigate the history of artists catching the air with banners, capes, and kites and creating spaces inspired by tents, camps, and nomadic structures. We will consider how artists have used fabric and plastic to create structures that resist the permanence of architecture and take advantage of movement and color. Material skills may include dyeing fabric, fabric and plastic construction, sewing, and methods for structures. The course will culminate with performances of activated pieces and by temporarily placing structures in approved campus sites, before and during the Spring Term Fair. FDR: HA Experiential Learning (EXP): Y de Lissovoy.
