New Course Supplement 2017


AAAS 88.19 Contemporary African American Visual Artists

This course provides an overview of contemporary African American visual artists and their cultural impact. Attention will be given to significant artists and movements (Kara Walker, Kyle Baker, Kehinde Wiley, Afro-Futurism, etc.) and to the new conceptualizations in art history brought about by them. Students will gain critical skills of visual literacy as they analyze drawings, paintings, and other visual media, while also learning to ground such observations within aesthetic, cultural, historical, and larger theoretical contexts. Student work will consist of presentations, short papers, and a gallery project, in which students present their own independent research in a collaborative student show. Open to all.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
