ARTH 28 CONTEMPORARY ART HISTORY

3 Units - 3 hours lecture
Transfers: CSU, UC
Recommended Preparation: ARTH 26  
This course offers a historical perspective of art and architecture from circa 1940 through the twenty-first century. The course begins with an overview of the arts in Europe and America in the first half of the century and continues through the second World War, exploring stylistic changes that occurred with a quickening pace and came to define late modernism and postmodernism. The course concludes with an emphasis on contemporary issues in an ever-shrinking global artistic community. All works of art and architecture will be examined within the cultural and historical framework in which they are produced. Attendance at scheduled field trips may be required. NR
