This class is a survey of contemporary art since roughly 1980 and will familiarize students with the most important ideas, mediums and genres that have circulated in the art world in recent decades. The beginning of the course will familiarize students with the art world, while the majority of the course will concentrate on themes around which a diversity of artist and practices will be oriented.
