During class today, visit the travelling exhibit about lists on the 2nd floor of the Farago Wing at the RISD Museum. Peruse the exhibit and create a list that derives itself from that expereince — whether it be a list of attributes visible in the lists themselves, spacial qualities of the show or a relational aspect. An example of this would be: list of shirt colors of visitors to the show, or list of fonts used within the lists in the show. Create a list of your own, choosing whatever medium or form best suits the concept of your list.
By 3:30pm, upload an image of your list to the class website and assign your post to the “List of Lists” category. We’ll meet in class at 3:30pm to look over your work and talk about the next assignment.
Keep in mind examples from today’s lecture on “Chance” and the Sol LeWitt quote below.
I will refer to the kind of art in which I am involved as conceptual art. In conceptual art the idea or concept is the most important aspect of the work. When an artist uses a conceptual form of art, it means that all of the planning and decisions are made beforehand and the execution is a perfunctory affair.
