Interdisciplinary Courses


As we are entering the registration and advising period, I wanted to send you a note about 3 interdisciplinary courses I will be teaching next semester and during the upcoming summer:

WMM 5010 01 Advanced Installation + Performance Tuesdays 1:00-6:00 p.m.
WMM 5040 01 Advanced WMM Seminar Wednesdays 1:00-6:00 p.m.
VC 4690 01 Street Lab 7/30/2018 - 8/10/2018

All my courses are taught from the perspective of multidisciplinary practice, and I always look for ways to have them open to students working with a variety of media and coming from variety of majors/interests. If you work with multiple media, and are interested in exploration of media-diverse processes, these courses are for you!

The three course I wanted to highlight are:

WMM 5040 01 Advanced WMM Seminar; Wednesdays 1:00-6:00 p.m.

The WMM Seminar course, which is pretty unique. It is an opportunity to develop two, expansive projects in any media, and engage in a series of in-depth critical conversations around the work. The seminar includes a tightly scheduled process, which is build around the work exhibitions and formal reviews by students and faculty. We also frequently visit local galleries and meet with artists. The more diverse group of media interests represented in the class, the more enriching and interesting this experience becomes.

WMM 5010 01 Advanced Installation + Performance; Tuesdays 1:00-6:00 p.m.

As with all my classes I am interested in a rich dialogue between people coming for different creative/artistic directions. If you are interested in exploring a performative aspect of your practice in other media, or looking to expand otherwise two dimensional work into installation setting, then this will be a class you might want to consider. Even though it is an advanced course, I would love to talk to you about ways you can be part of it.

VC 4690 01 Street Lab; Monday-Friday 7/30/2018 - 8/10/2018

And finally: i will be offering another session of Street Lab intensive at the end of this summer! It's a two week, every day experience, during which we work exclusively in public spaces around Twin Cities. The class does not meet at MCAD, but roams the urban and natural environments experimenting with different approaches to artistic practice. We learn to pay attention to the spaces and people around us, which become the inspiration, the source and the context in which we work. This "deep dive" away from the school "bubble" is unlike any other class you will take at MCAD!

Please consider these options. And if you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to email me, and I would be happy to answer.
