The “Grand Gesture” in Current Art:

Since the easy availability of new material, easy travel, scientific discoveries, and accessibility of information, artists have gone way beyond the limits of the studio, and created some immense and ambitious works of art, jumping from the canvas or frescoed wall to miles and miles of New Zealand coast line, Alpine lakes, transforming entire bridges and buildings, canyons and deserts, the whole of Central Park NY, immense objects made of industrial detritus and transported all over the world, webs of images navigating cosmic space, volcanoes serving huge buildings to contemplate light, to fifty thousand fireworks exploding in the pattern of Botticelli’s flowers. This class will present the amazing grand-gestures that are involving, participatory, and breath-taking in scope, as well as review most laborious large art pieces throughout time around the world, many of which serving to inspire current concerns.
