Seminar in contemporary art

Previously taught by: Vivian K. SHENG
9 credits

This course examines key issues and debates about the production, exhibition and circulation of contemporary art within an increasingly interconnected, yet unevenly developed globalising circumstance. Concentrating on key case studies, this course explores the social, cultural and political contexts where they are created and presented, analysing their form, content, reception and subsequent interpretation. Through the discussion of deliberately chosen artworks, exhibitions and curatorial projects, this course investigates the specific ways in which contemporary art interacts with the process of globalisation, both embracing and interrogating its far-reaching effects on the art world and our everyday experience of life.
