Course Description

ARTH 138
Contemporary Art
Spring

In the context of the Cold War, the McCarthy period, and the explosive ’60s, American art and the American art market were dominant internationally. Over the next decades, however, a far more global picture of art making has evolved, partly through the expansion of international exhibitions in different parts of the world, in Asia, Africa, and South America, for example. This course will examine selected chapters of this complex history of contemporary art (post-WW II to the present), alternating between "the local" and "the global".
Offered every other year beginning 2019-20.
