Evocative & Provocative Pedagogy:
Toward a Culture Changing Curriculum
a presentation by Olivia Gude based on the curriculum research of Spiral Workshop
first presented at the National Art Education Association conference in NYC in 2012
Imagine a form of art education that is a new art form in which sites of school or community-based art education are collaborative art projects, ongoing experiments in “relational aesthetics.”
Quality contemporary art education calls for the expansion of idioms of experiencing and expressing. What cultural productions, artworks, aesthetic practices, and theoretical tools eclected from a wide variety of sources are needed to participate in the world of the 21st century?
Consider how art classrooms can utilize traditional media as well as non-traditional projects such as proposals, performances, zines, flyers, bricolage clothes, and more to experience, understand, enjoy, and investigate compelling content in contemporary life.
