Theory and Professional Practice

Filippo Fossati

11am - 1pm

This class is an intense critique-based course in which a range of theoretical perspectives and diverse ways of thinking, making and talking about art are explored and valued. While the emphasis is on the development of individual studio practice, this course examines essential entrepreneurial skills, from conceptual principles of art making to practical art business and encourages parallel intellectual development in art history and critical theory.  The addition of visits to museums, galleries and artist’s studio supplements and adds further dimension and depth.
