Issues in Contemporary Art is a seminar/studio art course that explores the driving forces behind recent art, monuments, and architecture. The seminar structure will incorporate study through contemporary art criticism and current exhibition reviews. A studio art practice will synthesize research through art-making. Iconic artworks from the late twentieth to early twenty-first centuries will be viewed according to the social, political, and economic influences that shape the Contemporary Art Period. Key movements such as Chicano, Black, and Feminist Art Movements will provide historical context for discussion, research, and art production. Prerequisite: ARTH 1407 or 1408
