What is the course about?

Public art is for all. GDCV1057 aims to introduce students without artistic background into hands-on art making for the public realm. Students will look into contemporary concepts of art in public space, such as interventions and guerrilla art, and learn how art has the potential to transform our everyday perception of our environment, as taking art from a gallery context into the public can be challenging and thought provoking, yet at the same time playful and meaningful.

As part of the course, participants will explore HKBU-campus for its artistic potential, and complete a series of site-specific interventions using spatial concepts, methodologies, techniques and materials available. Most likely the interventions will be ephemeral only, yet the effect and memory they create for the passing audience will be longer lasting. The interventions will also encourage direct interaction with and feedback from the audience, thus provide participants opportunities to very actively get involved with their daily community.
