Critical Studies II (ATHR200-36)

In this second part of Critical Studies, students engage in a more conceptual and philosophical discourse surrounding visual culture and how it pertains to contemporary art in particular. Image-based lectures, readings, field trips and discussions introduce students to a more thorough understanding of the art world and the economic and social forces that shape visual art today. While looking at art is a fundamental part of this course, students are also challenged to develop a broader understanding of the way contemporary artwork relates to language, history and politics. Prerequisite: Critical Studies I or permission of the Director. Required Textbook: Fabozzi, Paul, J., Artists, Critics, Context: Readings In and Around American Art Since 1945, Prentice Hall (2001). Book is out-of-print so links lead to used copies of the text. Second hand copies are also available from Abe Books. It is highly recommended that students purchase or order textbook well in advance of the first day of class to allow for delivery time.
