This four-week session will explore the evolution of art over the past 60 years.
How has thinking about art evolved over the past sixty years? In this four-week course, we'll examine four seminal arguments (by Clement Greenberg, Michael Fried, Linda Nochlin, and Carol Duncan) as a means of answering that question. In each case, we'll discuss the context in which the argument was advanced, explore the claims of the author, and consider the broader subsequent influence of each argument. Class meetings will involve a combination of PowerPoint-based lecture and discussion, and while no art historical experience is expected, interested students are welcome to read any of the four pieces before the relevant discussion.
