HA 569.  Modern and Contemporary African Art.  3 Credits.   H   

In this course, we examine the development of artistic modernisms in Africa in historical context. We also study the content, production, patronage, and display of modern and contemporary African art. In doing so, we consider African artists' engagement with modernity, globalization, and contemporary issues, as well as interrogate influential myths and assumptions regarding African artists and the work they produce. Course themes include the workshop as a critical site, independence movements and the creation of national art forms, art as global commodity, and art in resistance, remembrance, and revolution. Not open to students with credit in AAAS 353/HA 353. (Same as AAAS 569.) Prerequisite: Junior/Senior standing and at least one course at the 100-level or above in AAAS or HA.

Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of General Studies in History of Art

Why study the history of art? The study of the visual arts in their historical contexts enriches our understanding of human creativity and the human condition. It provides students with the cultural literacy and critical thinking, research, and communication skills that are relevant for a variety of careers, including in art museums, galleries, and collections, as well as schools, universities, publishers, and archives. The study of art history can also provide the foundation for a career in other professions such as business, law, media, or government.
