INST 2601 - Art and Contemporary Culture

Hours: 4
Artists in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries engage in the conversations and debates of contemporary society, sometimes by reinforcing mainstream beliefs and values, other times subverting or challenging those values. Contemporary visual arts take many forms; photography, film, design, painting, sculpture, installation, craft, and printmaking are just some of the media of today’s art world. Sections of this course explore various aspects of the role of art and the contributions of artists to our contemporary world. They ask questions about how images help us communicate, create meaning, and understand local and global relationships.
