This course offers students an introduction to central debates that have informed the study and practice of art. A particular emphasis will be placed on art's relationship to a broader world. Core questions we will ask include: what is the function of art? What can art objects do?What relationship do aesthetics have as a critical tool in social and political action? We begin the class with a survey of key terms, as well as primary readings that help us understand core concerns over art as a mimetic form. Following this introduction, we turn to a series of readings that place an emphasis on the rise and fall of Modernism. We will conclude the class by looking at the expansive range of practices that inform the study and creation of art in what might loosely be defined as the postmodern era, including the introduction of time-based works, Conceptual Art, Performance Art, Institutional Critique and Outsider Art. Throughout the course students will have the opportunity to produce regular writing that engages both art theory and criticism, as well as conducting original research on artists and artworks.
