AHT 3010 - Modern Art


This course explores the visual arts from the 1860s to the early 1960s, focusing on the traditions of modernism. We will consider paintings, sculpture, prints, photography, film, architecture, and design, as well as other experiments with media and redefinitions of art. We’ll examine the cultural transformations in which modern art emerged, discussing art in relation to historical transformations in art institutions, aesthetics, and critical theory. We will also develop critical approaches to understanding modern art and will discuss its impact on how we interpret and create art today. (4 Credits) Formerly AH 301
