Lat Amer Avant-Garde Art

Latin American Avant-Garde Art
*Three-week course, first session*

The search for the NEW, the conflict between the local and the cosmopolitan, the self-questioning of the art institution per se, the encounter between the native and the European, the coexistence of the past and the modern spirit, and a deep sense of freedom, are some of the key elements in this course. We will study the social, political, and economic implications of this art in Latin America. In addition to the 1920s and 1930s, this course will also survey the spirit of rupture and revolution as it continues to evolve in the 1950 and 1960s. We will work with a wide variety of documents provided by the professor. (.5 unit)
