The goal of the course is to introduce you to major movements, artists and canonical works of contemporary art in order to develop or enhance a strong base of knowledge prior to entering a professional career in the art world. With an emphasis on global art from the 1980s to the present, this course introduces central themes—from technology to social engagement—and considers a broad range of artistic practices and institutional structures. Aimed to equip students with a complete vocabulary of contemporary art, each session will begin with a slide lecture and include time for discussion at the end.
