Contemporary Art 101

This class examines major themes and practices of visual art produced since the 1960’s.

Looking at such key movements as Pop, Minimalism, Feminism and Conceptualism, students explore the profusion of artistic production and content in the current century.

We will consider ways in which contemporary artists look to past traditions of practice, and invent new ways of making meaning in the work they produce.  Discussions and lectures will be complemented by virtual museum field trips and videos in this 8th course of our 9-part Art History series.
