Professor Sharon Alward’s Performance Art class appeals to those who are willing to blur the distinctions between art and life—to muddy the waters and create a healthy confusion of genres – to go beyond “either/or”. The class will be more interested in “both/and”, exploring a co-existence of nested truths. While the practice of art does usually end in a physical product, in this course art will be a process not a goal – or, to quotes Barthes, “the path would be equivalent to the goal” This course will welcome paradox, ambivalence, ambiguity, complexity, and uncertainty into the creative process.
