ART HISTORY & THEORY

Art History: The Human Form in the Modern and Postmodern Eras (AHIS223-36)

The human figure is the starting place of art. Its chief qualities of self-awareness and identification inspire empathy & repulsion, and can evoke divinity and abjection. It is dismembered, distorted, projected onto, and exalted. The second part of this course will explore the impacts of the Industrial Revolution, Modernism and Postmodern Eras. Foundational art history concepts such as visual analysis, historiography, and post-colonialism will also be introduced. Art and artists covered include William Blake, Gabriel Rosetti, Picasso, Dekooning, Kiki Smith and Marlene Dumas, to name a few! Course delivered in person through lectures, student presentations, and discussion. Students are expected to have reliable access to the internet and basic computer skills.
