This course addresses the stylistic evolution of the sculptural object in the early 20th century. With an eye on the elements of social and political change, we will consider the rise of the avant-garde, the impact of new artistic methods and materials introduced by Cubism, Dadaism and Surrealism and others. Although the course is organized historically, it is also designed to crisscross through a number of intersecting themes around the production and consumption of sculpture up to 1945.
Assessment: 100% coursework.
Prerequisite: One 1000-level Fine Arts course.
