ARTH 298 - Career Ready: Contemporary Visual Art and Design

What are the questions and concerns engaging artists and designers today? We’ll focus on the professional contexts for visual art and design: how it is made, how and where it is installed, how it is shared with diverse audiences, and how it is written about and received. We’ll use the history of artists’ statements and other writings by art historians, curators and critics as resources. We’ll focus on the personal and political commitments, ideas, and issues behind the public careers of an international range of creative practitioners. Students will engage with curators, museums, collections, exhibitions, and influential publications, via workshops with invited professionals in the arts. We will research, prepare, and plan relevant conversations collectively, and share them with the broader community outside Wheaton. Student projects will receive professional feedback from leading experts in the field of curating and museum education.
