In this three session workshop students will create installations and artworks based on the pioneer and contemporary history of such movements including: earthworks, ephemeral works, site-specific installations, environmental art, and performance. Students will address and investigate social, cultural, political, and environmental issues as a basis for their projects. Individuals will be urged to work as a team and collaborate on a large installation including a wide range of disciplines. Class focus will also be given to documenting the process and final installations.
