Conceptual Art as Contemporary Practice by School of Visual Arts, World School of Design

A unique 3 day residential workshop exploring meanings, forms, theories which mark conceptual practices in art.

Workshop Details:

This workshop will explore meanings, forms, theories and art making, which mark conceptual art practices transcending the divide between contemporary and post contemporary. There will be a special focus on performative practices, photography, video, text and new genre sculpture practices.

The heart of the workshop will be to understand the basics of conceptual art making and the possibility of imbibing such in ones day to day artistic practice.

Core Concerns:

1) What is conceptual thought in art? How does it relate to contemporary practices?

2) Rethinking a studio practice: An exploration to imagine a studio without a sketch book and an easel. We will open a window into day to day conceptual based practices and the evolving idea of a studio.

3) Skill after post modernism: The Postmodern Principles challenge our traditional element and principles of skill by stressing the importance of thinking outside of the box and allow you to really consider the point of view of the artist and what the artist wants to communicate to the viewer.

4) Between art making and viewing – Questions on the aesthetic experience : In contemporary times we have seen a overthrow of our traditional conceptions of what an art object should be made of and what it should look like. The artwork is now a process rather than a material thing- this ÔÇÿnew aesthetic will be explored and discussed.

5) issues of Context, Language and Appropriation – Dialogues between the Personal , Local and the Global : The focus will be on understanding the Re-presentation, Gaze, Hybridity, Appropriation and Re contextualization as important critical categories though with art is viewed and appreciated.
