Critical examination of major developments in European, Asian, and American art from 1940 to the present. Surveys the mainstream of art production but also examines marginal phenomena (feminism, identity politics, AIDS activism, net art) that come to change the terms of arts engagements with civic culture. Visits to area art museums and writing assignments develop skills for visual analysis and critical writing.
