From painting to robotics, performance to ceramics, artists are using an astonishing array of media to explore their world. In this course, students learn about artists from across the globe. We investigate the broad range of media that artists are using, and how they express their ideas through art. We also examine the social and economic factors that shape 21st century art practices, and the role of the artist in society. Students will develop the language and tools needed to critique contemporary art.
