AHIS 6-History of Modern Art CRN# 21313 Fall Semester August 23-December 8, 2010 MW 1:15-2:40pm Building 26D-2220 Instructor: Dr. Staci Gem Scheiwiller E-Mail: [email protected] Office Hours: By Appointment Blackboard: Course Description: Examines the artistic movements, infuences, and individuals forming the Modern tradition. Course Objectives: This course provides a foundation in the modern visual arts, beginning at the late nineteenth century until the 1970s, leading up to Postmodernism. We will examine major artistic developments and practices in the contexts of cultural and historical settings, focusing on how those developments arose, appeared, and/or transformed. A major portion of the class will be allocated to examining important texts by famous artists and critics. By the end of the course, you will understand the rise and meaning of Modernism as it relates to the expression of modernity and the conditions of modern life. In addition, we will define the “avant-garde” as a generative force in Modern Art and debate whether or not there is still a living avant-garde in artistic practice today. Requirements: Attendance and Participation: 15% Quiz (9/20): 10% Midterm (10/13): 25% Final Exam (12/8): 30% Research Paper (12/8): 20% Attendance and verbal participation in class are mandatory, as we will go over the writings and manifestos of artists and critics very carefully. I will only allot credit for an absence or allow a make-up exam with a proper note for an illness or other emergency. Please plan accordingly—do not remain in this course if you have a conflicting schedule or travel plans. The course will be on a 1000-point scale, so the midterm will be worth 250 points, etc. This way, you will be able to keep track of your own grade. 1
