New VA Course | School of Arte Útil VISA1080
Arte Útil was conceived by artist Tania Bruguera in 2013 to address art’s use as a tool for social & political change. Whether through self-organized groups, individual initiatives, or rise of user-generated content, people are developing new methods and social formations to deal with issues that were once the domain of the state. These initiatives are not isolated incidents, but also part of an art history that has been neglected, yet shapes our contemporary world.

HIAA Course | The Arts of India HIAA0023
How does art aspire to beauty, participate in political action, motivate the economy, and engage with the divine? In this introduction to the arts of India, 1600 to the present, we will consider these questions. From the floral designs adorning the Taj Mahal to popular clay figurines, and from the British colonial production of turning cotton into patterned cloth to Gandhi’s movement for independence based on the hand-spun, we will examine the arts of painting, sculpture, and monumental architecture alongside the decorative arts of textiles, furniture, ceramics, and bronze, and modern artists’ contemplation of earlier traditions to create the contemporary.

Joyce Scott | Artist Talk
Wed. Feb 6, 5pm
List Art, room 120


MacArthur ‘Genius’ Fellow, Joyce J. Scott is best known for her figurative sculpture and jewelry using free-form off-loom bead weaving techniques similar to a peyote stitch, as well as blown glass, and found objects.  As an African-American, feminist artist, Scott unapologetically confronts difficult themes as diverse as her subjects which include race, misogyny, sexuality, stereotypes, gender inequality, social disturbance, economic disparities, history, politics, rape, and discrimination.  Her art leverages its impact with her wry, subversive humor, and engages hardened stereotypes that demand honest examination. Please register here.
