New Course: Road Movies & Travelogues

Department — KVH @ 1:14 pm, Wednesday, November 7th, 2012

New Course in Printmaking for Spring 2013!

PR  399A – .01   Special Topics  – Road Movies and Travelogues

Faculty: Eva Wylie and Nadia Hironaka

Ed Ruscha 'Royal Road Test' 1967

The course Road Movies and Travelogues is centered around thematically driven investigations of travel. As part of this course and related program series, a group of MICA students will travel to a set destination (Portland,Maine), where they will facilitate and participate in thematic workshops, lectures, and screenings.

This experience will culminate in an exhibition where work created during the journey will be exhibited at MICA.

While materials and production methods for the exhibition works will vary, students will explore the travelogue as a vehicle for ideas and artistic production while challenging the conventional notion of a book, i.e. the form it takes and how it is read.The primary emphasis of the course will fall on the growth of each student’s personal vision as developed during the road trip.

Critiques, screenings, conversations, readings, seminars, demonstrations and personal experience will initiate students into their research as they develop their own body of work based on the theme of travel.
