ARTE 3000. Pre Exhibit Review (BSED) (0-0-0) This course involves showing and talking about your work with a panel of faculty members. It is meant to gauge your level of understanding of contemporary and historical art concerns, your progress in portfolio development, preparedness for exhibition, and critical engagement with your work. At this stage in your art education, you are building your portfolio through intermediate and advanced level coursework and should be able to show proficiency in a range of studio disciplines. You will be expected to identify specific concerns and interests reflected in your work in terms of what you are potentially installing for your graduate exhibition. This is your opportunity to demonstrate and discuss your artistic process and the conceptual intentions of your artwork. A passing grade for the junior review is required before taking the Senior Exhibition class.
