Art Novels 179b: Book Cover Interpretation - 12. 10. 15
Professor David Alworth’s Art Novel 179b students submitted book covers this week that they designed based off of discussion from novels on the course syllabus, including Gravity’s Rainbow by Thomas Pynchon, Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov, 10:04 by Ben Lerner, and Another Country by James Baldwin. Students spent the semester delving into the dynamic relationship between the American novel and the visual arts, from the late nineteenth century to present day. Students learned how to understand the relations among verbal, visual, tactile, digital, and ambient media. In addition, students in the course discussed what happens when novelists engage with painting, sculpture, photography, film and video, performance art, and other artistic practices.
