ART 423 - Art Since 1945

(3.00)
In the post-World War II period, the center of avant-garde artistic activity shifted from Europe to the United States. The period witnessed the peak of Modernism - in movements such as abstract expressionism and color field painting - and Modernism’s almost simultaneous challenge in a host of movements in the USA, Europe and, increasingly, around the world. This new phase in art, that some historians termed Postmodernism, opened up the boundaries of the art world as never before to new practitioners, new media and new centers of contemporary art practice, while the term itself became the subject of great debate. This rich terrain will be traversed in a way that is particular to the instructor’s research specialization.
