ART1301 Contemporary Art Foundations

This course will introduce the student to contemporary art and some of its practitioners. The course will seek to explain contemporary art in terms of the cultural and historical conditions determining its production. Art will be presented as a series of trajectories and discourses to which artists have historically reacted or contributed. Through classroom discussions, exams and presentations students will be encouraged to articulate, analyze, critique and compare the diverse modes of production explored by contemporary artists in the context of the social and political conditions from where they emerge.
