Picasso, Pollock, Warhol (3 cr.)

This seminar will look in detail at three of the twentieth century's most important artists: Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock, and Andy Warhol. Our central focus in doing so will be painting, in particular, the means by which these three artists tested, expanded or even "destroyed" the medium. What did it mean to make (or reject) painting in 1910, 1950, and 1965? Special attention will be paid to recent scholarly literature and close looking at works in local collections.

Credit cannot be earned for HART 546 and HART 334.

Trends in Contemporary Art (3 Cr.)

This seminar will map the terrain of contemporary art as it has developed in the wake of political and theoretical engagements of the 1990's. For many critics, Contemporary Art practice has given way to the worst aspects of spectacular culture losing sight of the political, theoretical, and artistic rigor that characterized the historical and neo-avant-garde. Graduate students will be assigned 1-2 additional readings each week and prepare a final seminar paper of 20-30 pages.
