Course Description

ARTH 190
Gender and Sexuality in Contemporary Art

This seminar explores two interrelated topics: how women artists revolutionized a male-dominated art world in the past 50 years, and how gender and sexuality became central themes of contemporary art. Starting with the late 1960s, we will study: feminism’s intersections with conceptual art, minimalism, postmodernism, and social practice art; the constant renovation of painting, sculpture, and photography through feminist and queer perspectives; and the profound cultural effects of the reimagining of gender, sexuality, and identity in contemporary art and art scholarship.
