FINE2096. Contemporary art, theory and criticism [new]

6 credits

Vivian K. SHENG

This course provides a critical introduction to the practice, theory and criticism of contemporary art since the 1960s. It is thematically organized by focusing on specific artists and their practices each week, rather than simply adhering to a strict chronological structure. Moving across a wide range of media, techniques and display formats, this course considers different curatorial, theoretical and interpretative stances in the production, display and distribution of contemporary art and examines how the work of art might reflect on our present living situation beyond the art world and relate to wider communities within and across regional and national boundaries.

Assessment: 100% coursework.
