FINE7008. Seminar in Contemporary Art

Second Semester
9 credits
Lecturer:

Vivian K. SHENG

This course will provide a critical introduction to key issues and debates about contemporary art and exhibition making within the increasingly interconnected, yet unevenly developed globalizing world. With a specific focus on a selection of artworks, projects and exhibitions, this course will examine the social, cultural and political contexts in which they were created and presented, analysing their form, content, reception and subsequent interpretation. By virtue of these chosen case studies, students will consider and explore how artistic practices and exhibitions have produced, framed and impacted recent art historical knowledge.

Assessment: 100% coursework.
