Primary Instructor:

Art and Design in Context is a lecture and discussion course which aims to achieve three main goals: first, to introduce students to key concepts and topics in contemporary design and art; second, to use these concepts to analyze case studies in contemporary art and design; and third, to enable students to employ these concepts and topics to place their own work and that of others in appropriate critical contexts. Lectures, readings, exercises, and discussions will challenge students to apprehend correlations between specific case studies drawn from contemporary culture (images, objects, media, and events), the issues associated with them, and the social, political, and cultural contexts in which they exist. Students will begin to apprehend the complex network of people, ideas, things, and histories in which works of art and design, including their own, exist.

Course Requirements:

Attendance at both weekly lecture and discussion section is required. Attendance will be taken. Class quizzes, research papers and weekly concept description write-up

Intended Audience:

Undergraduates

Class Format:
