AHST 102 Art, Design & Moving Image II

3 credits 45.0 hours
100 level undergraduate course

Renaissance Humanism emerged in fourteenth-century Florence and continues to influence the study of art and architecture today. This course introduces students to the emergence of humanism in the early Renaissance and the artistic and intellectual traditions that arose subsequently, such as Baroque art and European and American modernism. Students will investigate a diverse range of artists, designers, and art historians; encounter familiar favorites through a new lens; and learn about underrepresented critics and makers. In addition, students will have the opportunity to study the advent of photography and the moving image to explore the increasingly blurred boundaries of media in contemporary art. The works addressed not only call into question long-held beliefs and traditions, but establish new lines of inquiry for emerging creatives.
