ART 385 - Semester on Contemporary Art

4-8 credits
The New York Semester on Contemporary Art offers students the unique and exciting opportunity to learn about the ongoing history of art since 1945 through the combination of reading, class presentation and discussion, and visits to artists’ studios, museum and gallery exhibitions and public art projects. By pursuing each of these paths of discovery students learn about the major movements associated with the postwar period (Abstract Expressionism, Pop Art, Minimalism, Feminist Art, and others) as well as overarching themes of expression (identity, for example), changing processes and modes of making, interpretive methodologies, expanding definitions of art, relationships between art theory and practice, and the roles of art institutions and cultural workers (critics, curators, historians) in mediating our experience of contemporary art. Same as ARTH 385 . Formal application is required of all students. Prerequisite: ARTH 306 . Co-requisite: ART 385L  Offered fall semester. CLA-Off Campus Experience, CLA-Writing Intensive
