ARTS 303 - Video Art

Semester Offered: Second Semester
Full Course
Credits: 4 credits
Attribute: 4HU

This course surveys the history of Video Art from its emergence in the mid 1960s to the present. Focusing primarily on its development in the United States, we will pay special attention to Video Art’s initial outgrowth from modernist artistic practice (painting, sculpture, performance, experimental film), its relationship to its “parent medium” of television, and its expansion from the domestic monitor into large scale projected image installations, complete with a full-scale embrace of cinematic properties. Students will learn to analyze video as moving image art and contend with works that confront the medium’s social, political, and ethical stakes
