FA 211 Global Contemporary Art


3 credits

This course will introduce the difficulty globalization poses to canonical contemporary art from the 1970s to the present day, drawing attention to problems involved in defining what the term “contemporary art” actually means. This course spans aesthetic and ideological strategies that negotiate complex subject matter, ranging from gender, sexuality, and race, to war, colonialism, social media, and nature, among others. Students will develop the necessary tools to interpret, understand, and evaluate contemporary artistic practices in a global context.
