ARTH 418. Modern and Contemporary African Art

Crosslisted: ARTH 518

This course examines the rise of Modern and Contemporary art movements throughout Africa, from 1959 to the present. As colonial influence diminished, important artists, art schools and exhibition tactics have emerged. Developments in painting, sculpture, photography, video and film illustrate the tensions and triumphs of contemporary African nations. Course work centers on a substantial research paper based on primary source material. Additional assignments required for graduate level course. Prerequisite: Permission of the Instructor.
