EVENTS

Exhibition @ Rose Art Museum

Thursday, September 19, 6:00PM

As the 2019–20 Ruth Ann and Nathan Perlmutter Artist-in-ResidenceWoolard draws upon the formal and spatial languages of conflict mediation to transform the Lee Gallery into a platform for self-initiated and facilitated group discussions. The Meeting launches the first iteration of INDEX, a new initiative at the museum. Housed in the Lee gallery, bi-annual projects by INDEX artists will produce site-responsive and participatory platforms and programs. Like a book’s index, the project serves not only to list but also to reorganize, cross-reference, and establish new relationships to content. INDEX at the Lee Gallery is a place where people and ideas merge in a collective manner.  

Organized by Caitlin Julia Rubin, Assistant Curator. INDEX: The Meeting is made possible and supported by the Ruth Ann and Nathan Perlmutter Artist-in-Residence Award Fund.

This feedback form is a meant to guide students as they develop the skills to review their peers' artwork. This worksheet is about how to speak about a project, not about the FORMAT of the critique itself (see Critique Menu for that).

What is your preferred pronoun? What experience do you have with the topics and techniques you image we will cover in this course? Can I tag you in social media? What are your access needs? Do you have experience with self-directed work? These are the sorts of questions I ask to get to know the students I am working with. I tailor activities based upon their feedback. I hand this form out on the first day and have students fill it out a bit in class, and then finish it for homework.

A Framework: Projects, Platforms, and Practices

As artists, we need to learn to think organizationally in order to imagine how our artwork and ideas might circulate in the world, and to take action. This workshop aims to help students and artists think through the platforms and practices that are aligned with their projects.

Excerpts from Making and Being (forthcoming)

Download PDF

Making and Being: a Guide to Embodiment, Collaboration, and Circulation in the Visual Arts is a multi-platform pedagogical project which offers practices of collaboration, contemplation, and circulation in the visual arts. Making and Being is for arts educators who want to connect art to economy; for students who want to make artworks that reflect the conditions of their own production. Making and Being is a book, a series of videos, a deck of cards, and an interactive website with freely downloadable content.

Making and Being: a Guide to Embodiment, Collaboration, and Circulation in the Visual Arts is published by Pioneer Works, distributed by DAP, and is a contribution to BFAMFAPhD from Susan Jahoda and Caroline Woolard with support from Fellow Emilio Martinez Poppe. The website with teaching tools, videos, and presentations to accompany Making and Being is coming soon. PRE-ORDER the book here: https://squareup.com/store/makingandbeing and download the excerpt, printed as a newspaper for our series at Hauser and Wirth, here.
