Adjunct Instructor in Visual Art & Media Foundation


Deadline:
Fri Mar 14, 2014 23:59

The Brown University Department of Visual Art is searching for artists to teach several courses at the foundation level: Studio Foundation (VISA0100), Media Foundation (VISA0120) and Drawing (VISA1100/1120). Several artists will be hired for one-year appointments to teach up to four courses in Foundation and/or Drawing and/or Media Foundation. Appointments may be renewed annually for up to three years with the successful completion of each year.

The Brown University Visual Art Department strives to continually redefine what art can mean through exploration, experimentation, and critical inquiry. We aim to provide new knowledge in the field of professional art for the 21st century. We equip dedicated practitioners and non‐artists alike with literacy in the arts, technical skills, and tools for creative problem‐solving.

Studio Foundation VISA0100
This course serves as a pre‐requisite for the Visual Art concentration and as elective courses for the University at large. VISA 0100 introduces basic drawing techniques, as well as principles of 2D and 3D design.

Media Foundation VISA0120
Media Foundation has been developed as an introduction to electronic media art and the use of the computer as a tool for creative work. The course is required for Visual Art Concentrators.

Drawing I & II VISA1100 & VISA1120
The Visual Art Department requires all Concentrators to take at least one drawing class. Drawing courses at Brown can cover a wide range of approaches from: life drawing, perspective rendition, drawing from observation, drawing from pictorial references, drawing from imagination, sequential drawing, drawing using a wide range of media - all with an emphasis on drawing as a tool for creative expression.

Pixilerations [v.8] - Deadline Extended


Deadline:
Tue Apr 19, 2011 23:59

Location:
Providence, Rhode Island
United States of America

PIXILERATIONS [v.8]
New Media Fringe Festival @ FirstWorks
September 22nd-October 2nd, 2011

CALL FOR WORK
Deadline for entries extended to April 19, 2011
PIXILERATIONS [v.8] is a new media festival in Providence, Rhode
Island (USA) that investigates the state of new media arts through
installations, performances and film/video screenings. It is part of
the larger FirstWorks Festival (www.first-works.org), a
multidimensional performing arts festival in Providence each fall.
Pixilerations is produced by FirstWorks in collaboration with the
Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), Brown University, and the City
of Providence's Department of Art, Culture + Tourism. Now in its
eighth year, Pixilerations is one of the foremost venues for new media
artwork in New England.
In an era of Facebook/Twitter-inflamed revolutions, biotechnology
ethics wars, and youtube-generated museum exhibitions, this year's
festival seeks to examine the question "Where – and what – is New
Media Art today?" New Media art traditionally held a role at the
intersections of art, science, technology, ansd social realms, yet
artists who do not identify as New Media artists now make free use of the same tools as video game programmers, robotics engineers, and DJs.  Pixilerations [v.8] seeks work that broadly explores these identity questions of art/not art, new/old. We invite artists, musicians, performers, film/video makers, and new media practitioners to submit work.
