Beyond the Book [Molly Schaeffer]
All Levels | In this class, we’ll look at a range of work that combines image and text: book art, broadsides, illustrated poems, even mind-maps (Renee Gladman, Cecilia Vicuña, Kurt Schwitters, Kenneth Patchen). You’ll experiment with different multigenre forms and will leave the first session with the beginning of a project. In the second session, we’ll workshop one another’s works-in-progress and look at other examples of durational, interdisciplinary work as inspiration. Class will be a combination of survey/slideshow, conversation, and hands-on work time. No artistic ability is required; please bring an openness to possibility.
