Course Description: Painting and the Body provokes exploration of the human body’s expanding definitions and contexts. Students explore the relationship between painting and contemporary understandings of the body as a subject, an instrument, and a theoretical framework. Students investigate processes of performance, gesture, and painting informed by ideas including metaphor, portrait, figure, flesh, and corporeality. The perception and representation of the body, and how the body is used in art making are examined and challenged in response to various questions such as, What constitutes the body and its boundaries: within and without, private and public, visible and invisible? What does the contemporary body look like?
