Sculpture

Sculpture installation with syringes

The sculpture/installation program encourages students to investigate and a multitude of methods, materials and actions. Because object making and a diverse range of fabrication techniques and technologies is common to most methods of expression throughout contemporary art practice, the program engages the material, technical, aesthetic and theoretical dimensions within contemporary practice.

Emphasis is placed on students' problem-solving abilities and conceptual development while engaging the formal parameters and technical demands consistent with art production. Students are encouraged to develop a keen interest in critical ideas and issues through studio seminars and humanities courses, allowing them to develop a critical understanding of the socio-economic and political conditions that influence artistic production and consumption.
