ARTH 3580 - 20th and 21st Century Art: Variable Topics

3(3 + 0)

Prerequisite: ARTH 1700 or permission of instructor

Prerequisite/Corequisite: ARTH 3080

This course studies art of the 20th or 21st centuries in a specific geographic location, or under certain social conditions, or within a specific movement, or by focusing on a single or small group of artists. The cultural contexts that informed themes, content, techniques, processes, function and display of the artwork provide fundamental interpretive frameworks. Students identify historical problems in the field of study and examine variations in scholarly interpretations of the works of art. Specific topics may broadly survey art of a region, such as German Art since World War II, focus on particular movements, such as Minimalism, time periods, such as Art of the 1960s, themes, such as Art and Society or on specific artists, such as Picasso and Matisse. (This course may be repeated for credit under different topics for up to nine credit hours.)
