(NOT OFFERED IN FALL/WINTER 2011-12)
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.
Anti-requisite: Students who have taken VISC 3B09 may not take this course for further credit.
Notes: VISA 2B07 History of Modern Art is strongly recommended in advance of this course.
