AH 329 Art Now: Special Topics in Contemporary Art
This seminar examines art since 2000 with an emphasis on the present. Topics covered vary with each iteration of the course to correspond with the most pressing current issues in contemporary art. Guest speakers and field trips supplement in-class discussion of recent art works, exhibitions, institutions, criticism, and theory. The goal is to produce more informed, critical, and engaged viewers of the art of today.
While there are no prerequisites for this course, it is an advanced seminar. Students without prior art or art history training who wish to learn about contemporary art are encouraged to take AH235 Contemporary Art: 1945 to the Present instead.
