In-Person Learning Class
This course focuses on collage, the archive, collecting, and appropriation related to contemporary photography. Students will learn to ‘play with pictures’ in imaginative, conceptual, exploratory, and intelligent ways. This learning will happen through assignments, experimental making, readings, journal writing, film screenings, group discussions, critiques, and other activities. We will investigate the collection, curation, and juxtaposition of photographs from a wide range of sources.
We will consider how new personal, social, and political meanings can be generated from different groupings of images. This will be framed by critically reviewing the work of contemporary visual artists who use archives, collecting, and/or appropriation in their practice. We will use found photographs and snapshots and bend them, cut them, reposition them, manipulate them.
Odette England (https://www.odetteengland.com/) uses photography, performance, writing, and the archive to explore themes of autobiography, gender, and ritual.England is an Artist-in-Residence at Amherst College in Massachusetts. She is also a resident artist of the Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts Studio Program in New York.
