ARST 223 - Intermediate Painting: Image Appropriation

FC ARHU
4 credits
This course examines the role of appropriation in modern and contemporary painting, focusing on the intertwined relationship between photography, digital imaging, and painting. The advent of photographic and digital imagery has placed appropriation front and center in contemporary art, but appropriation has always been central in the art practice across mediums and disciplines. Projects ask students to appropriate from these visual histories into their painting, while exploring and examining appropriation as a critique and as a process. Students are expected to choose painting mediums, processes, and surfaces that reflect their conceptual premise. Field trip(s) required.

Prerequisites: one introductory 2D course in ARST.
