ARTH 3100 - Soup Cans? Puppies? Transgenic Mice? Exploring Contemporary Visual Art - Writing Intensive

Hours: 3
Explores visual art and culture of the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries, focusing primarily on art after 1960 in Europe and the United States.  Linda Weintraub notes that artistic freedom expanded beyond all limits in this period, becoming “unencumbered by methods, rules, and requirements” and making artists our culture’s “free radicals.”  We will consider the different roles taken on by contemporary artists as visionaries, activists, problem solvers, and cultural critics as they create works connected to the world outside art.  Our approach focuses on how contemporary artists have engaged with particular themes and content relevant to this period, such as identity, place and spirituality.

Offered alternate years.
