FASC 364 - Installation and Performance

3 credits
This course explores the concepts and practice of installation and performance art and their development during the past century. Four primary aspects of Installation are explored: the multisensory immersive environment; the site-specific work; work responsive to the history, usage, or natural aspects of a particular site or location; interactivity or installations in which the audience is encouraged to participate; and the performance art ranging from theatrical situations through the private acts of the artist that explore particular behavioral, experiential, or social issues and is documented through photos, videos, etc. The history of installation and performance work is discussed through a series of lectures and video presentations that examine the art historical, social, cultural, and psychological concerns from which these art forms are derived. Students are expected to be resourceful and inventive when realizing their work.

Prerequisites Completion of Foundation or MMDI*101 and MMDI*102
