In this course, students explore contemporary art as it evolved (and continues to evolve) in Europe, America, and globally. Students explore how contemporary art varies depending on culture, and how global issues affect postmodern art. Students also define and redefine the concepts of modernism and postmodernism. Students explore how the latter developed historically, stylistically, and culturally. Students also explore the consequences of new thinking about gender and identity and the phenomenon of cultural globalization as applied to the contemporary practice of art.
