FAMD 301 - Contemporary Issues

3 credits
This seminar addresses select theories and critical ideas multidiscipline artists should know. Issues include traditional investigations of aesthetics, the history of art movements like Modernism and Post-Modernism, as well as media and visual popular culture. Connections will be made between ideas, theories, and practices that show up in the work of relevant 20th century artists and in all media including: space/time media formats such as performance, collaborations, installation arts, sound and video, etc. Emphasis is on how philosophy, art history, art criticism, and cultural studies can be used by the artist to understand the contemporary climate, not only in the art world at large, but also in the personal world of the individual artist. The goal is the illumination of connections between artists and the ideas and artistic approaches of the modern era with emphasis on the last few decades.

Priority enrollment to Multidisciplinary majors.
