ART 154C After Archives: Photographers & Research

The role of archives, photographers, and research in contemporary photographic practice is addressed by examining the special archives at the UCSC library and the Prelinger Library in San Francisco and by curating a group exhibition. Students make a project in multiple media, such as photography, video, text, installation, and drawing prompted by UCSC Special Collections' vast archives and collections. Through studio projects, readings, discussions, and case studies, students engage the immediate context of the university as source material for their artworks as a means to explore the effect that research and knowledge production might have on contemporary artistic practice.
