This course introduces students to graduate-level discourse and engagement that will support the evolution of their practices and research. Focusing on critiques as a site for investigation and inquiry into practice-based and studio learning, students will embark on the creation of new works and projects.

This course introduces students to advanced vocabulary and forums to support the development of their research questions and studio practice within the context of larger theoretical, philosophical, social, and political concerns. Students will explore ideas, texts, and discourses that can augment and complicate their artistic practices and develop written interrogations and reflections of those ideas and discourses in relation to their artistic practices.
