ART 395 Art After 1960

Spring even-numbered years

This course surveys the art of the second half of the 20th century, from Pop Art and challenges to the modernist aesthetic through the Pluralist Era of the late 1990s. Emphasis is placed on the formal analysis of art and understanding how politics, economics, societal change, and the visual arts interrelate. Topics covered include British and American Pop, Minimalism, the emergence of new genres such as Performance Art, Earth and Environmental Art, Video, and Time Arts, as well as in-depth discussion of the origin and development of post-modern and pluralist theory and its expression in the visual arts.
