ART 316 - Modernism in the Arts


Min Units: 3
Max Units: 3
This course traces the development of modern art from the invention of photography through World War II. Responding to historical events, the legacy of academic art, and new forms of mass media, artists sought to produce art that reflected and shaped modern life. This course examines modern approaches to the arts in tandem with the theoretical texts influencing modern art’s production and reception. This course introduces key terms such as modernism, the avant-garde, realism, expressionism, orientalism, primitivism, abstraction, and anti-art. Artistic movements covered include, but are not limited to, Realism, Impressionism, Expressionism, Cubism, Dada, Surrealism, and the Harlem Renaissance. (U) Occasionally
