About the Class
What makes art “contemporary”? How do we determine what’s “good” in the art of our time? The answers to these questions are complex and even contradictory—much like contemporary art itself. This course is an introduction to art from 1970 to present. Surveying a wide range of media and artistic strategies, the course navigates thematic topics that ground contemporary art in historical, aesthetic, political, and social contexts. No background in contemporary art necessary.
Capacity: 40 students
