2:00 pm – 4:50 pm
East Hall, 304
This course seeks to examine the social and cultural history of contemporary global art from 1990 to the present. Through the study of key theoretical concepts and pivotal figures of the period, the course explores globalization, social practice and participation, institutional critique, and new technologies of image production and circulation in the digital era. The changing institutional and financial structure of the art world, the rise of biennials, issues of race and access, art tackling climate change, and the interrelationship of contemporary art and critical theory in the era after the rise of postmodernism in the 1970s and 1980s will be covered.
