The Graduate Photo Workshop encourages students from all programs to participate in a conversation-driven environment designed to share new and innovative works of art. The boundaries of traditional photographic practice have been expanded to include books arts, VR, video, performance, and installation work. The emphasis of this workshop will be centered around the development and support of works of art, critical analysis of assigned readings, and examination of artists employing imagery as the primary emphasis of their practice. The photography program annually brings in visiting artists and scholars to participate in the graduate workshop in the form of one-on-one studio visits.
Graduate workshop is offered every semester and meets once a week. Each semester the curriculum for the course changes however there are typically two distinct concentrations during each course; the critique of work and the exploration of contemporary trends and practices. In the past curriculum has ranged from the history of alternative sites for creative sharing, pedagaogical development, exploration of reserach practies, and contemporary theory and criticsm.
