MPSM404 Site and Social Engagement 3


This course explores examples of contemporary “social practice”, its historical precedents, and current scholarly dialog on the topic.  Social
practice refers to the field of contemporary art practice that moves between art and life. Often, it is created in communities and spaces
unaffiliated with traditional cultural institution and is frequently driven by an effort towards social change. The projects are usually
collaborations with practitioners from many disciplines, are site-specific, and success depends on long-range planning and team
management. In this class, student will have the opportunity to design and model their own socially-engaged, site-specific projects informed
by the content of the course. The class will include visiting artists, site visits, and assignments designed to give students access to
venues outside of their comfort zone.
