We had our first critique on Tuesday, with Practicum Mentor Jen Liu as our guest critic. Jen started off by telling the participants about her installation up in Chelsea at Dawn Kasper’s space, and the work that was on the walls (and in her computer) for her upcoming shows in Copenhagen.
The critique was on the participants first assignment: recreate a recent work. The challenge is that without access to their school facilities, the participants had to make use of the city as a resource. This exercise was focused on process, and I have been encouraging the participants to think about the whole practicum as a place to transform and transition their process into one that can function outside of the school-space. Correspondingly, I am encouraging them to not worry about producing finished products: this is a place of experimentation and growth.
