Advanced Themes in 20th-Century Afro-American Art
ARHA 368
Fall 2009 not offered
Crosslisting: AFAM 322

This course is intended as a seminar for students who have already taken an introductory Afro-American art course. We will study in greater depth specific artists and will focus, too, on questions of black cultural nationalism and the ideology of "black art" as they pertain to painting of the 1920s and the period since 1968. There will be a mandatory trip to the National Black Fine Arts Show (New York, early February). We will study collectively the works of several recent and contemporary painters and photographers (Kerry Coppin, Vincent Smith). Each student will then select for study one 20th-century artist.
