The Artist Interview

“The Artist Interview” AHDS 324
with Dayton Director and Professor of Liberal Arts Ian Berry

This course explores oral histories as a form of original art historical research and offers students the opportunity to lead interviews with guest artists. Aspects of biography, process, materials and meanings will be discussed. What happens to an artwork’s meaning once it leaves the studio? How do viewers influence and create an artwork’s meaning? Students research artists and artworks in teams and prepare questions for the artists. Artists interviews are recorded, edited and added to the Museum’s archive.
