2018 Spring London
AVC 4200/Lecture/A - Introduction to Art Across Cultures | Credits 3.00
Throughout history and across cultures, humans have always found meaning and pleasure in translating their own natural, political and religious environment into images. This course focuses on key visual moments of this process, and explores their art-historical significance in relation to the specific societal context in which they were produced. It includes an examination of the most innovative and prolific artistic ideas of Western and non-Western cultures, and explores creative exchanges across and within artistic communities. Art-historical constructs, such as those of Tradition, the Primitive and the Orient, as well as the influences of non-European visual cultures on the development of modern European art are considered. Students will be encouraged to critically engage with various topics during in-class discussions and visits to London’s rich offerings of museums and gallery collections.
