This Introductory Open Studio course is about researching and developing new genres, multiple combinations and various multidisciplinary hybrids of art making into interdisciplinary art practices which convey contemporary thematic/metaphorical content. Methods of art practices may include options of integrating: installation, digital reproduction and time based work (blurring the boundaries between performance, video, sound, animation, book works) as components for each project.

Many of the student work examples presented below may not represent all the objectives for the Open Studio course but instead offer some initial ideas in combining various disciplines.

Often a single example of work presented on this blog may not demonstrate all the required objectives for a particular assignment. Instead students should collectively consider: the required objectives for each assignment, the examples presented on this blog and during in class presentations. As well ideas discovered through a student's independent research in combination with examples and various ideas presented by instructor will ultimately be the best approach for synthesizing ideas and reaching the requirements (and unique outcome) for any particular course project.



ASSIGNMENT 1: Research Assignment for Thematic /Hybrid Art/Contemporary Art Practices

ASSIGNMENT 1: Researching Contemporary Art Assignment - Thematic and New Genre Art Practices

This assignment is meant to expand research skills and to expand knowledge about contemporary art practice.

There are two parts to this assignment (Part 1 and Part 2):

Part 1 
  
Requirements of Part 1
A) Select an example of an image by an artist (or art collective) that combines work into a new genre and/or new media

Ideally this choice will utlize a fine arts sensibility (not commercial or non-market driven sensibility) where an artist or art collective are working in an innovative way. 

Typically an example of a new genre  artist is an artist who combines or creates hybrids of art making from various arts disciplines that could include: drawing, painting, sculpture, installation, architecture, poetry, performing arts (including music, theatre and dance), film, photography, video /animation, and artist book works.  Other disciplines such as science and technology could also be utilized in new genre art practices.
   
B) Include a 100 word description with image.


Evaluation of Part 1:
25% - Visually Complex work that combines work into a new genre  and/or new media  (Interesting Hybrid of art practices) 

25% - Text Describes work in a substantial way and also discusses new genre  characteristics of art practice 


Part 2    

Requirements of Part 2
A) Select an example of an image by an artist (or art collective) that combines work into a new genre and/or new media, but work must also have thematic content.

This selected image and text is similar to part 1 but the image example of work chosen must also have thematic content in relation to contemporary ideas.
(choose a different artist from part 1)

B) Include a 100 word description with this image as well


Evaluation of Part 2:
25%  - Visually Complex work that combines work into a new genre  and/or new media  (Interesting Hybrid of art practices) but also presents thematic content 

25% - Text Describes work in a substantial way and also discusses hybrid characteristics that include thematic content in relation to visual language
