AH 315 - Contemporary African Art


Credits: 3
An in-depth study of African art since the early twentieth century. Focused mainly on the sub-saharan region, the course begins by examining the impact that colonialism, with its appropriation, exploitation, and reshaping of Africa, had on the arts in Africa. It then analyzes a broad spectrum of modern and contemporary African art forms (painting, printmaking, sculpture, textiles, photography, performance, and film) and related literary works from the 1950s to the present, with an emphasis on such issues as patronage, the commodification of art, urbanism, national consciousness, and the effects of globalization.
Prerequisites: one art history course.
Note(s): (Designated a non-Western culture course.)
