Contemporary Art there are multiple directions being taken employing both old & new media, contending with issues of gender, race, spirituality, global concerns, and their intersectionality. This seminar will mostly focus on both painting & sculpture in the last 10-15 years beginning with many of the artists from the Forever Now exhibit that occurred at the Museum of Modern Art in late 2014-early 2015. We will look at their work then and now, particularly what they have been creating in the studio this past year in the midst of the pandemic. Other artists of significance will also be featured throughout the course. Conversation and discussion is encouraged!
Class format: We will meet together using Zoom video conferencing. An invite will be emailed to you before the first class session, and you'll need internet access on your computer, tablet, or phone to participate.
