ARTH 244 - 20th-Century Arts of Asia


FDR: HA
Credits: 3
Planned Offering: Fall 2014 and alternate years

This course examines art of the 20th century from South and East Asia, primarily through the lenses of larger socio-political movements that informed much of Asia’s 20th-century cultural discourses: Colonialism, Post-Colonialism, Socialism, Communism, and Feminism. We also address heated debates concerning “non-Western” 20th-century art as peripheral to the Western canons of Modern and Contemporary art. The art and artists’ lives and works we study challenge us to engage broader and more inclusive concepts about transnational identity, artistic production, and art-historical taxonomy. Kerin.
