This class is designed to cultivate the necessary communication skills for exchange and collaborative production especially for the joint program with overseas partner universities. This is not only about improving the English language skills of the students, but also about improving an artist’s communication skill to better convey one’s own art practice. In this class, students are tasked to create their own artist portfolio and self introduction. On the more theoretical side, there are also readings and discussions pertaining to important art theories in the history of contemporary art. The goal of this class is to discover the necessary ability to communicate and work collaboratively in a global context.
