This class will examine the appearance and significance of portraiture in visual culture from antiquity to the contemporary era of digital production, with special attention to themes of power, memory, and identity.  

Among other topics, this class will consider four specific sets of issues: 

  • The human face as a political instrument: students will discuss how depictions of the face reflect changing social and political relations. 

  • The human face as an affective instrument: students will discuss how artists make the human face into a site of emotional and affective communication. 

  • The human face as a contested identity: students will address how artists manipulate the representation of the human face to challenge constructions of gender, race, and class identity.
  • The human face in digital technology: students will examine how the digital revolution changed the significance of the human face in contemporary media culture.

ART WRITERS: THEIR SOURCES AND THEIR EFFECTS

This course for beginners to the subject will introduce the history of art through the history of influential writings about the history of art, as well as texts which have served to inspire artists’ imaginations. The interface between text and image will be addressed in relation to ancient art, medieval art, Renaissance art, and in the use of intertitles in silent film. Art theory, art criticism, and art historical writing (both scholarly and not) will be sampled, always in relation to how we look at works of art, and how those patterns of looking change across the centuries. When is visual communication sufficient in itself, and when is it not?

The last period of Italian world prominence in the visual arts, the Baroque witnessed a shift of artistic power toward Spain, France, and the Netherlands. The private collecting of pictures, controversies over the legitimacy of religious images, the exploration of etching, pastels, and monotypes, and the serious pursuit of less august subject matter for the visual arts all served to separate Baroque art from its esteemed predecessor, the Renaissance. Bernini, Borromini, Caravaggio, Velazquez, Rembrandt, Rubens, and Poussin are among the artists to be studied.

European art of the "long" eighteenth century (1680-1815) experienced radical shifts in aesthetic, social, and political orientation: from the splendors of absolutism to the austere neoclassicism of revolutionary art. This course explores painting and sculpture (and works in other media) in relation to the development of a public sphere, the emergence of individualism, the invention of personal domestic comfort, the introduction of women to artistic power, the scientific revolution, and the birth of global consumer culture. Prereq: one 400-500 level art history course; or instructor permission.

Contemporary Art & Design

This seminar course examines the major debates and practices of contemporary art spanning the time period from the 1960s to the present. Rather than a strictly chronological survey, the course focuses on specific moments, techniques, and theoretical frameworks that inform contemporary practice and criticism. Movements for consideration will include minimalism, performance art, and appropriation art to name a few. The course will end with an examination of emerging art movements of the present, particularly in relation to the impact of globalization on art and the predominance of socially engaged art as a new art practice.
