Hispanic Culture Through Art

Hispanic Culture through Art

Art, as a language of images and forms, is a vehicle for ideological and cultural currents. This course will focus on giving a clear and concrete vision about "isms", and a transformation of Fine Arts from the turn of the century through the last years of the twentieth century. We will search for a continuity and a raison d'ĂȘtre of the essence of the avant-garde. We will discuss significant artistic works as expression of braoder artistic currents in the Hispanic cultural context, as well as connections and contrasts between Spain and the United States. In the course the students will learn to answer questions as: What is the purpose of this artistic technique? and What can I say about that work of art?
