Class Details

Taking inspiration from female and non-binary Latin American artists from the 1970s and the publication Radical Women: Latin American Art, 1960-1985 by Andrea Giunta and Cecilia Fajardo-Hill, students will receive a series of prompts for performances to be documented with video and photography. Each prompt will address a different photographic or video technique and touch on topics related to intimacy, care, domestic space, gender, and identity. This class meets twice weekly and is composed of image analysis exercises and practical assignments. Outside of class, students will be expected to create, perform, and document the performances individually and in groups. Students can use any type of digital cameras and can access Williams Equipment Loan and the Adobe Suite available on Williams computers. Students will also practice giving each other feedback and reflecting on their creative process for creating images.
