ARTS 240 - Art and Theory 1950-1980
Surveys international art movements since 1950 that questioned the definition of art, the status of the art object, and the role of the artist in the late 20th century. The crisis of modernism serves as a point of departure for consideration of shifting modes of production and interpretation in art and criticism. Varied theoretical paradigms that have informed artistic practice are examined in the context of rapid and radical social change, the emergence of new media, the breakdown of conventional artistic boundaries, the impact of post-colonial thinking, and the explosive growth of art circulation.
