Medium and Materials workshops are required for BFA Fine Art students but may be taken as electives by students in other programs.

As the threshold for media production software and hardware drops, visual artists increasingly have the opportunity to work with time-based, trans-disciplinary tools. This class explores time-based media production with a focus on skills that allow students to become technically proficient and thinking media makers. The course will expose students to a broad range of works: from conventional film and video, to video installation, performance documentation, generative and interactive works. The course surveys and analyzes current trends in video and digital art practices through frequent screenings, readings, and discussions attention to the social, political and creative contexts that have informed the development and history of the medium. Along the way, we will examine a diverse group of contemporary media makers and writers whose work explores a range of cultural, critical and formal concerns. The production portion of the course explores the range of possibilities for video art production including single-channel, installation, performance, and web-based projects.

Faculty: Dean Kessmann
Tuesday 1.00 - 5.30
Listed under Main Campus -  Art/Fine Arts

This course has been designed for students who have an interest in photographic images that defy more traditional uses of the medium as an objective conveyer of visual information in a “realistic” way.  Many of us have come to accept that photographs depict the world in a realistic way.  Our language about lens-based photographs often supports their function as windows and mirrors, yet we simultaneously recognize that flat photographic reproductions, in black and white or color, are far removed from the reality that was captured on film or digital chips.  Additionally, photographs often frieze a fraction of a second out of an ever-evolving chain of events unfolding around the photographer.  We regularly discuss these contradictory views of photographs in black and white terms, that is, as either/or distinctions.  Thus, some would argue that conventional, lens-based photographs cannot be abstract because they describe in great detail the outermost, visible surface of their subjects.  At the other end of the spectrum, one may contend that all photographic images are mere two-dimensional abstractions of their three-dimensional referents and nothing more.  However, in this course, we will explore the vast space that exists between these two extreme views of photography. In this course, students will investigate a wide variety of approaches to making photographic images through chemical and digital photographic processes.  We will discuss definitions of abstract and representational photography on a theoretical level and explore practical ways of making photographs that are firmly situated within aesthetic traditions of historical and contemporary abstract and representational art.  We will discuss whether a single photograph can be an abstraction and a representation at the same time, while simultaneously challenging ourselves to complicate our answers to this question through the creative act of making photographs that defy our expectations.

Prerequisites: Students must have a basic technical understanding and previous experience with chemical and/or digital photography (either Photo Fundamentals, Introduction to BW Photography, or Introduction to Color Photography)

FA 3901           Special Topic: Invention 101 - A practical introduction to invention (hybrid innovation arts, sculpture, digital fabrication)
Faculty:           James Sham
Time:               Wednesday 8:00-12:30
Location:         Gelman 402

This course gives a practical overview of how innovations have impacted society at crucial moments in history.  Students will be introduced to hands-on innovation-based problem-solving by studying both historical precedents as well as designing and building complex and original inventions.  Throughout the course, students will hand-fabricate their own prototypes using wood and other readily available building materials. This course will require a combination of hands-on studio work and reading/discussion.  Although this course has no prerequisites, students should arrive expecting to learn or hone woodshop tools and processes.  Prior sculpture experience is recommended but unrequired.  Students will utilize fabrication facilities in both Smith and Flagg.

FA 3913 / FA6290 Painting Off the Wall
Tuesday 1.00 - 5.30
Julia Brown
Flagg B135

This course will explore the possibilities of painting gone “off-the-wall,” beyond the parameters often assumed for it. We will study examples of painting commingled with other creative fields such as architecture, sculpture, social practice, performance, and film/video, and create our own hybrid works. Students will complete a series of projects that explore painting in dialogue with these disciplines, as well as an independent final project.

FA 3901           Field Seminar with Mel Chin
Faculty:           Mel Chin
Time:               Thursday 6:10-9:30
Location:         Smith 102

This seminar will explore expanded practices in public art with a special focus on issues connected to the Washington, DC area. The course will be built around the collective interests of its participants in dialogue with Mel Chin, inaugural Visiting Professor in Community Engagement. Over his long career, Chin has insinuated art into unlikely places, including destroyed homes, toxic landfills, and even popular television, investigating how art can provoke greater social awareness and responsibility. During his residency this year, Chin will continue work on the effects of lead and heavy metal contamination on communities around the country and Washington, DC. http://www.melchin.org/
This course will continue in the spring. Students may participate for the full year or a single semester.

This course explores American art during the 18th century “consumer revolution,” the American War for Independence, and the early republic.  Lectures and readings emphasize the socioeconomic and political purposes of art with a focus on the visual culture of the  Enlightenment and Second Great Awakening.  Issues of national identity, republican ideology, capitalist enterprise and institutional slavery will be discussed in relation to paintings, sculptures, prints and architectural spaces.  A civil war, the American Revolution sowed the seeds for the Civil War of 1861-65. 

AH 3181          Asian Textiles in Context
Faculty:           Cristin McKnight-Sethi
Time:               Tuesday/Thursday 12:45-2:00
Location:         Smith 115
This course introduces students to diverse textile traditions from Asia spanning the prehistoric period to the present day. Regions to be explored include China, Japan, Korea, the Indian subcontinent, and several countries in Southeast Asia. Students will examine materials and practices central to the production of textiles from this broad geographical region. Topics include various weaving techniques, hand block-printing, natural dyeing, and embroidery in fibers such as wool, linen, silk, and cotton. How do questions of gender and labor engage with textile production? What are the roles textiles play in social and ritual functions in Asia? How are textiles used and valued in trade and cross-cultural exchange?  In addition to exploring the economic, social, political and aesthetic values of textiles, we will also look closely at individual examples of textiles from the Textile Museum at GW to uncover what they reveal about use, technique, process, and histories of the handmade.

Location:         Smith 106
This course explores the way craft objects have been manipulated and maneuvered within India’s political, economic, social, and artistic landscapes. We will explore several indigenous craft traditions from the subcontinent, examining not only their intricate processes of making, but also investigating how they circulate and take on new meanings. How has craft been defined on the subcontinent? What role did craft play in shifting colonial policies and British involvement in India? Why did handwoven cotton cloth (known as khadi) gain traction during the nationalist movement, emerging as a symbol of political defiance and self-governance? How does production and circulation of crafts through non-profit organizations frame contemporary understandings of “the folk” and gendered forms of labor? In addition to assigned readings and class discussions that explore the role of craft objects and craft-based practices across diverse chronological periods and regions within India, we will use the collection of the Textile Museum at GW to closely examine individual objects in person.
