Course Description

Contemporary art is activism, community outreach, video, sound, new media installations and performance. Concurrently, much of contemporary art still encompasses traditional mediums such as sculpture, ceramics, photography, textiles, printmaking, painting, and drawing. Through lectures and class discussions, students will examine the historical roots of certain non-traditional forms of art-making, as well as discover how contemporary artists are responding to more traditional media.

  • Explored the multiple types of interactions in contemporary art through lectures, discussions, and individual explorations of exhibitions and artists.
