    Eileen Cowin is an artist who sees living as a means to break boundaries, and psychology as a way to confront us with strange attitudes or to implicate us in seemingly self-imposed spatial confinements. –Art Papers April 2007 by Eve Wood

Thesis I/II

Thesis I/II
LIBS784/785

 

Thesis I

LIBS784   3 credits

A two-semester writing project that situates the student’s final art project within contemporary criticism in a publishable text. Students will build a Case Study using their own work, exploring the applicable modes of perception and assessment according to critical paradigms. In the first semester, students will focus on defining and documenting their project, doing research on related artists’ works or theories, and identifying critical themes, areas for investigation. An outline and a first draft will be expected by the end of the first semester.

 

Thesis II

LIBS785   3 credits

In the second semester students will focus on refining their positions, redrafts and final edits. By the end of the term students will complete their thesis of 25 pages. It will include current and historical references, a case study of each student’s project, and a critical analysis that includes multiple kinds of data. The intervention of this written capstone project is to provide evidence that the student is able to articulate his/her intentions in the context of contemporary art practices.
