Formerly ART 259
3 Credit(s) | Lecture | Graded or pass/fail
Course can be counted for credit once

This course examines major developments in contemporary art since 1989. Via lectures, readings, discussions, and a field trip, students become familiar with recent trends in art. We analyze works in traditional media, such as painting, sculpture, and photography, as well as those that span media or employ newer artistic techniques, like installation and performance. We will additionally critically assess the roles of art markets, museums, galleries, art fairs, biennales, curators, and critics in the increasingly globalized art world.
