Course aim:
This course will explore the fascinating relationship between image and text, art and literature in the visual arts from illuminated manuscripts to contemporary artists using text as the basis of their work.
Course description:
The relationship between image and text, art and literature has been an ancient, complex, and utterly fascinating one. From cave art and illuminated manuscripts to the collaborative friendships between artists and writers, the creation of now iconic book covers and illustrations by famous artists, through Cubism, Dada, Futurism, Surrealism, and Pop Art, as well as contemporary conceptual artists that base their practice on text in its various forms, the art of the word has, quite literally, forever narrated the multiple stories of our world. This ten-week course will explore an eclectic range of these relationships and contexts, both cultural and personal, in an attempt to foster a deeper understanding of just how the art of the word has shaped artistic production and informed our interpretation of narrative and texts. Why not join us and be part of the exploration?
By the end of the course I will be able to:
1. discuss a range of historical and contemporary socio-cultural issues and debates associated with text and the visual arts employing appropriate language and terminology
2. historically situate the origins and characteristics of the relationship between text and image through the employment of suitable art terms and language
3. consider some of the theoretical debates that inform the development text and art and its critical reception
4. endeavour to analyse artworks that contain text employing appropriate language and terminology with more confidence
