ARTS 243 - Art & Theory 1980 to Present (AH)

This course focuses on the artistic outburst in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Breaking away from the traditional chronological survey of art along a Europe-US axis, students will study themes and issues such as relational aesthetics, collaboration, and globalization to understand how art has been reinvented within the contemporary period. Along with studying particular artists and art practices, students will be discussing the increased importance of curators and exhibitions, especially the biennial system, as central to the circulation and networking of contemporary· art.
