OVERVIEW

New York
What is art? What are the boundaries of artistic expression? What are the connections between art and culture; art and the public; art and politics; art and commerce? In this class, we will explore these questions, formulating an open-minded response that is based on an investigation of the profound changes in artistic expression from 1900 to the present. Since the early modern period, and the contributions of such progressive innovators as Picasso and Duchamp, the nature and role of art has been continually revised. In searching for alternatives to privileged media (oil on canvas, marble), artists have pushed the boundaries of the visual arts to include air, light, sound, words, technology, the human body, the human mind and refuse. As a class, we will study the progression of Modern and Contemporary art, exploring such movements as Cubism, Dada, Surrealism, Pop, Performance, Installation, Body, Land, and Conceptual art. 

Location:  New York City, New York

The objective of this WinTerm course is to introduce students to the museums and galleries of New York City. In the 1950s, New York City displaced Paris as the center for the art world. Since then, New York has drawn millions of visitors per year to visit the world famous museums, restaurants, theaters, and shopping districts. While in NYC, students will be required to visit one or two museums per day, yet also have plenty of time to sight see, eat, discover, and shop. While this is an academic course, with plenty of rigor, one of the primary objectives is to have students really experience the big city - learn to navigate on their own, study works of art first-hand, absorb the international culture, and participate in the lively city life.

Prepare for winter weather similar to that of Wisconsin - bring warm clothes!
