CHS 3481 - Latin American Modernisms

Credits: 3

Prerequisite(s): ARTH 1700 with C- or better or CHS 1000; or permission of department

Description: This course is an introduction to the development of modernism and postmodernism in Latin American art from 1910 to 1980. The course examines artists of differing periods and nationalities within a unifying thematic framework. These themes include: responses to the colonial past; nationalism and public art; indigenismo; folk/ popular arts; and relations with the European avant-garde. However, historical and geographic circumstances also provide a mechanism for distinguishing between individual artists and national or regional art movements. As a result the course examines distinct but intersecting manifestations of modernism within 20th century Latin America.

Note: Credit will be granted for only one prefix: ARTH or CHS.

Cross Listed Course(s): ARTH 3481
