MPSM406 Contemporary Art Issues 3cr

Students explore issues of theory, interpretation and criticism of contemporary art, focusing on developments since 1980. Contemporary and
historical readings along with in-class discussion and group presentations provide a basis for critically understanding one’s own
artistic practice in relation to other artists, as well as the culture at large. Students are exposed to writings, interviews, and artworks
representing marginalized populations and ideas often overlooked in mainstream historical sources. Throughout the semester, students
practice research and critical writing skills by observing and writing about the work on display throughout the campus as well as in galleries and
museums in Boston.  Additionally, students will have the opportunity to experiment with methods for presenting and disseminating their writing.
