Conceptual Art in Europe and the United States
ARHA 256
Spring 2008 not offered

This course will consider the privileging of the conceptual - as opposed to the retinal - in art after 1969 and the international employment of nontraditional media such as words in the usual arts of the period. It will also investigate how a generation of artists trained in universities may have used that critical training in their work and how the political unrest of the late 1960s and 1970s may have played a role in the development of conceptual art.
