Throughout the course, students will learn about contemporary, performance artists and performance art pieces. Specifically, we will consider artists working from the 1960s to present day. We will discuss artists, such as Tehching Hsieh, Yoko Ono, Linda Montano, Carolee Schneemann, Ana Mendieta and many others. We will also research up-and-coming artists who are not as well-known. We will discuss Endurance Art, Alter Egos, Site-Specific Performance Art, and other genres of performance art. Students will complete weekly visual art projects using photographic media. Students will also complete assigned readings and watch assigned films. Students will participate in weekly lectures and discussions.
