Modern and Contemporary Art
Including two online certificate courses with a bonus self-directed module (worth US$245), this package gives you the opportunity to study two moments in the avant garde: when art history changed forever between 1900 and 1939, and how artists are still working through the implications of that revolution in The Contemporary Art World: Theory and Structure.
Modern Art introduces you to the many artistic movements that erupted in European painting during the first half of the twentieth century and the major artists associated with them. You will learn about the development of Fauvism, Expressionism, Cubism, Futurism, Dada and Surrealism – and more. At the same time, you’ll be introduced to those working with modern art today, and those who developed the market for it in the 20th century.
The Contemporary Art World: Theory and Structure gives you both an understanding of contemporary art and the artists who create it, as well as well as a way of navigating the contemporary art world through learning about the major galleries, auction houses, collectors, art fairs and more, and how they interact in this vibrant ecosystem.
Speak with Confidence about Contemporary Art is a 2.5 hour single-session self-directed course that gives you a framework of ideas, questions and vocabulary to approach contemporary art with confidence, formed around four filmed interviews with contemporary artist Ann Carrington; museum director Victoria Pomery, educator Lizzie Perrotte and Christie’s Tessa Lord.
