ARTS 001DH: Honors Art of the 20th Century

Course Description

Honors Art of the 20th Century uses the pedagogical methods common to all Honors courses: interdisciplinary, writing-intensive, collaborative, and experiential instruction. As this is an Honors class, there is a focus on analytical writing, exploring the field through reading primary source research and an emphasis on a high degree of student leadership and participation in class discussions and other interactive teaching/learning techniques that are generally not found in larger undergraduate classes. This course examines visual culture-- painting, sculpture, architecture, installation, site-specific, performance and digital art --in the West from the Impressionists to the present day, emphasizing the evolution of changing attitudes toward form and content. Visual culture is analyzed through the lens of modern and postmodern critical theory.
