AESTHETICS & VALUES
The Aesthetics & Values seminar examines the vital role visual art plays in the social and cultural dialogue surrounding controversial issues. It investigates how artists have challenged or enforced authority by creating new aesthetics. It further explores how art is used to initiate, accelerate, or combat social change. The heart of the course is the Aesthetics & Values Research and Exhibition Project. This annual project provides students with the opportunity to demonstrate their resourcefulness and creativity through the research, curation, and organization of an on-campus exhibition of contemporary Miami artists.
Students will be given a tour of the UNTITLED Miami Beach art fair. Following the tour, students will revisit the fair individually. Each student will select one aspect of UNTITLED to reflect upon. The subject selected can be an artwork, a person (artist, employee, or visitor), an architectural space, a social commentary, or any other relevant aspect.

Projects will be posted on a social media public forum, which will enable the host institution to engage student perceptions. This provides students with the opportunity to engage in a community dialogue in regards to their work. This should not impact student perspective or analysis. Your professor and the host institutions are interested in a genuine experience and honest reflection.
