Dept Marketing Statement

The Arts Division offers technical training, aesthetic development, and historical, theoretical, and critical studies in art, history of art and visual culture, dance design/technology, drama, film and digital media, digital arts and new media, games and playable media, and music to all undergraduates as well as to undergraduate majors and graduate students. The division is comprised of departments and programs of study, organized research units, instructional and research programs to attract and retain a diverse population of students, and a variety of support programs and facilities.

Isaac Julien, Distinguished Professor of the Arts, leads the IJ Lab together with Arts Professor Mark Nash. The Lab at Santa Cruz is designed as a mirror for the London studio, a place from which moving image and photographic works are produced. One of the aims of the Arts Division at UC Santa Cruz is to focus on the artist as cultural entrepreneur, an artist who necessarily engages with the art world and art industry to further their own practice, both as a way of developing their own aesthetic language as well as pursuing both commercial and cultural imperatives.

Mark Nash, Professor of the Arts, is an established critic and curator. He edited the British film theory magazine Screen before embarking on film and art installation projects with Isaac Julien, and curating important international exhibitions such as Documenta 11 in 2002.
