Course Description: 

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.
Mutually Exclusive: Credit cannot be earned for HART 570 and HART 349.
