ART 321

Contemporary Art History (Spring)

Lecture, 3 Credit Hours

An emphasis on art since 1968. Postmodernism, multiculturalism, Earth Art, Installations, and New Media are examined. Rather than looking at the art as part of a chronological movement, the work and artists are discussed as a way of understanding various theoretical and cultural conditions. Although video and digital images will support discussion, this course is primarily a theory/readings course. (ART 102)
