"Live!: A History of Art for Artists, Animators and Gamers"
/ e-course

ART & ARTISTS/HISTORY

California Institute of the Arts online course.

24 February - 21 April 2014

This course approaches the questions of “art” and “history” from the perspective of contemporary makers of art (sculpture, painting, photography, performance, installation and more), animators (whether character/story-based or experimental) and gamers, asking how artists actively make a history for their own practices by thinking about the creative process as a “conversation” with a wide range of art from the past.
