ARTHIST 231

Framing the Viewer: 20th Century Art


Description

The rise of Modernism saw the development of art which is reflexive, which draws attention to itself and the illusion of representation, making us reflect on what art is and how it affects the viewer. This course is designed to enable students to develop their own reflexivity and critical awareness through a study of the "classic" movements of the twentieth century, such as Cubism, Expressionism, Dada, Surrealism, Abstract Expressionism, Op, Pop and Conceptual Art.
