Lindsay Harris (Section 04)
The course will survey the Visual Arts since World War II, primarily in the United States and Europe, but with some consideration of developments in the larger international arena. Following a brief overview of modernism, the course will offer a detailed examination of Abstract Expressionism and Minimalist developments; Pop, Conceptual, and Environmental Art; renewed interest in painting and figuration, and the critical debate surrounding the subject of Postmodernism. The survey will conclude by exploring key issues in art at the turn of the twenty-first century, such as the impact of globalization, digital technology, and the Internet on art and its production, display, and interpretation.
