Art of the ’80s, ’90s, and 21st Century
A retrospective and prospective point of view is used to analyze contemporary art, beginning with the many coexisting styles and schools of the pluralistic 1970s, progressing to the powerful neo-expressionist images of the 1980s, and then considering the globalism of the 1990s. Discussions also contemplate the increasingly provocative content of much recent art and the 21st-century fusion of existing styles.

Realism in Art
Various artists from the 17th century to the present have worked in a style that can be termed realist. This course explores the definition of realism in art and examines why these artists chose to work in an empirical style. How do their styles differ, and what does their work tell us about the societies in which they lived? Students choose and place in social context a 20th-century or contemporary realist to discover how the meaning of realism has evolved over the centuries.
