ACOM 210 - Contemporary Art


This course explores contemporary art and the factors that influenced its development. It begins by identifying the foundations, parameters, and essential terminology of contemporary art. This is followed by considering artists from around the world who work in a wide range of mediums and with a wide range of themes. Students will look at images of artwork in class and at actual artwork in one or more New York City museums, galleries, or public spaces. The goal of looking at, talking about, researching, and writing about art in formal (visual), conceptual, and personal terms, is to enable the student to develop a perspective on what contemporary art is, where it came from, and what it can be.
