ARHT 345 - CONTEMPORARY GLOBAL ART SINCE 2000
What is "contemporary art" today? In this intensive seminar our emphasis will be the global art scene since 2000, and related late-20th century trends. We first ask, "what are the hot topics in the art world today," and then look back in time to better understand where they come from. Topics will be updated to reflect current gallery practice, and will likely include performing identities, social encounters as art, and screen-based, glitch-based, and immersive forms of art, sound based gallery art, and the arts of contemporary self-identified "indigenous" peoples. We will also consider how international art fairs have come to dominate the art world everywhere, determining how value is assigned and deciding who and what we are able to see. We will attempt to make sense of the many different art worlds taking place all at once in our contemporary world, and the ways that they intersect, overlap, and contest each other specifically within the New York City art scene today. We will engage directly with the New York an scene through several study trips to alternative galleries and to events like the Armory Art Fair and the Whitney Biennial.
