Announcing my UCIrvine Class :: Art & Activism


This spring quarter, I will be joining the lecturing faculty at @ucirvine 's School of Social Sciences to teach a brand new course I have developed titled Art&Activism. If you are a UCI student I hope you will consider enrolling as we dig deep creatively and intellectually. I feel it's gonna be a life-changing experience for all. The class will meet T/Th from 2-3:20 in SSL 206. Hope to see you in class. Feel free to email me with any questions.

Here's the course description:
Can art speak more or as effectively as conventional language? To what extent does an artist’s skill relate to the audibility and the reach of her art? Can art inspire contemplation? Can it affect/influence policy decisions? If art cannot affect social change, does its expression still have value?
This course examines these questions as we review examples of activist art in the 21st Century including how advances in technology affect the production, delivery, and consumption of art. The course also examines the evergreen activist nature of art within historical movements such as Baroque, Rococo, Renaissance, Impressionism, Expressionism, Fauvism, Surrealism, and Dadaism.
The course also examines what constitutes art, what makes art valuable, and the tensions that exist between individual versus collaborative expressions.
