VISC 3B09
Art After Modern Art: Conceptual Practices
0.50 Credit(s)
Academic Course
 
Prerequisite: 1.0 Liberal Studies credit at the 200 level, including 0.5 VISC credit.

This lecture course provides students with an overview of conceptual approaches to the art object and the creative process. By examining both contemporary art practices and their historical antecedents, the course both contextualizes and explores how 20th-century art practices have approached and incorporated issues of the body, language, gesture, space and time, and the dematerialization of the art object. Conceptual art, performance art, art and language, and installation art will be discussed.

Notes: Priority registration for CRCP Majors.

VISC 2B07 History of Modern Art is strongly recommended in advance of this course.
