Every two years Pittsburgh hosts one of the most important exhibitions of global contemporary art, The Carnegie International (CI). This course highlights the artists and artwork of the current CI and places these works in an historical context. The first half of the course will be devoted to issues in modern and avant-garde art in Europe and North America and sets the foundation for an in-depth exploration of the CI. The second half of this course will explore the ways in which the modernist tradition has been challenged and re-evaluated by contemporary postmodern and feminist artists from around the world, highlighting the work of artists represented in the CI. 3 credits FULFILLS GLOBAL REQUIREMENT.
