New Genres is a philosophical, interdisciplinary approach in which the artist’s concept and intentions determine the best means for actuating each individual work.
Drawing on its legacy as the country’s first Performance/Video Department, its application of rigorous dialogue and questioning parameters of art forms to time-based work, quickly expanded to include installation, social practice, site specific work, and other trans-disciplinary media and approaches. No longer a medium specific department, the New Genres Department was born.
New Genres courses are cross-disciplinary laboratories for experimentation, discovery, and radical boundary-pushing. Through dialogue, critique, and practice, students learn to hone and better articulate their own visual language.
