SCULPT 655 001, 2 weeks, 3 credit hours
Sunday, June 4, 2017, 8pm – Saturday, June 17, 2017, 10am
This interdisciplinary studio/seminar, led by the collective HAIR CLUB, explores hair as a lens through which to examine a diverse array of contemporary issues, events and experiences. The first week will focus on hair as cultural content with lectures, readings, and discussions around how hair carries expressions of power into gender, politics, and consumerism. The second week will delve into hair as material subject in writing, fashion and visual culture. Through these generative discussions, students will create responses that can take any form of the students’ choosing, as book or anthology, as object or garment, as narrative sequence in two dimension or as performance in space and time. HAIR CLUB is committed to outward facing-research and collaboration and will invite participation from the wider Ox-Bow hair community.
