Description
Art Now offers student an introduction to the theories, practices, and debates around contemporary American and global art, 1960 to the present. Emphasis will be placed on art of the last decade. The approach to the material will be thematic rather than strictly chronological; course lectures and discussions will explore key themes, like memory and loss, and significant strategies, like repetition and appropriation, by giving each an art-historical context and then moving on to examine specific examples of recent American as well as global art.
