Performance art is a way of extending and expanding your studio practice. Like drawing, it’s a way of working out ideas in real time. This studio course is designed for anyone interested in the inherent practices and narratives of performance art, and anyone who wants to push the disciplinary limits of their work. Each week students will make their own experimental performances while exploring the history and evolution of performance art. Group exercises will hone physical and vocal skills as well as build confidence. We will look at and engage with a wide range of performance forms, including Dada, happenings, fluxus, conceptual performance, punk, drag, social practice and mixed-media spectacles. Note: Open to students from all departments.
