GRAD 655 - Graduate Seminar: Visual Culture Studies

3 credits
In this graduate seminar we examine the content and evolution of contemporary visual culture - that is everything we see, may see, or visualize and the how we use visual and textual means to communicate, define, and produce our culture and its artifacts. We examine historic origins and changing contexts that underlie and inform a broad range of creative practices including art, design, architecture, cinema, media, display, material culture, digital culture, popular culture, sustainable design, and performance. By addressing concerns for 21st century artists, art educators, industrial designers, museum designers and practitioners, students gain an understanding of the concepts, objects, and practices that comprise contemporary visual culture, and learn how these ideas may be applied to their concurrent graduate research, writing, and studio practice.

Restricted to students enrolled in graduate programs.
