ARTH 2080 - Art of the 20th and 21st Centuries

Credits: 3

Prerequisite(s): ARTH 1700 with a "C-" or better or permission of department

Description: This course is a study of modern and contemporary art from 1900 to the present, primarily in Europe and the United States. Students learn how styles developed in response to one another and how artistic movements were situated within cultural contexts. The course introduces major 20th- and 21st-century critical, intellectual, and aesthetic frameworks for art, as well as cross-disciplinary contributions by poets, composers, dancers and designers. Shifting conceptual definitions of art provide a foundation for understanding contemporary practices, and thus a focus is placed on avant-garde and progressive forms of art throughout the historical period.
