ARTH 28.07 Outsiders: Artists and Art in Text and Film

In our modern age, art and artists have been considered as different, outside of the mainstream, inspired by genius or madness. Was this always true and how did it come about? This course will explore writings and films on artists and the art world, looking at literature, biography, manifestos, criticism, and popular culture. We will study the genre of the exhibition (solo show and/or blockbuster) to identify how the museum or gallery is involved in this narrative of individual genius. From Pliny to Warhol and beyond, we will examine our continuing notions of what art is and has been and how art and artists have been written about for centuries.
