final meeting

Our final is scheduled for Thursday 05/11—this means we do not have class on Tuesday 05/09. I will hold an “open house” style meeting so you can come and check in with me any time during our scheduled 90 minute final (12:30–2pm or 3:30pm–5pm). I will distribute project grades at this time and we will all chip in to clean the studio. This is also the time to turn in any revised assignments or update me on any outstanding items.

Remember that (in accordance with the Art Department) attendance on this day is mandatory to pass this course.

All course/instructor evaluations are submitted online this semester, so feel free to complete these on your own time by the May 6th deadline.

See you next week! 



PAW assignment

Next week we will be participating in Performance Art Week as a follow-up to the performance work you did earlier this semester. This assignment is worth 10% of your final grade, and you may choose one of the two assignment options below.

Note that since the schedule of events happen on both Thursday 04/20 AND Friday 04/21, we will not be having a formal class meeting on Thursday of next week — use this time to perform or attend.

You may choose any of the events on Thursday 04/20 or Friday 04/21 to attend. Write a 3-5 page (double spaced) review comparing and contrasting two different performances you witnessed. As a guide, you should have roughly one page of introduction to the event and performance art history, a page describing and evaluating each of the two performances you witness, and a page concluding your comparisons of each of the works.
