Instructor: Johnny Walker
Description: Art is about experimentation. It is about trying new things, extending boundaries, and pushing limits. But Art is also rooted in the past and all new work is built upon the foundation of what has come before it. In this class, we will study a selection of artists using their work as inspiration and start-off points from which to launch our own explorations. We will study artists who work in a variety of ways, each with their own focus and style – Andy Goldsworthy, Ghana Think Tank, Tom Sachs, Doris Salcedo, Gorilla Girls…
As artists we codify culture. We help define the present and generate possibilities for the future. To successfully do this, we must know our past, know our peers, open our senses to life around us, and bring our own personal voice and vision into the world.
