UNIT 4: CONTEMPORARY ART, 1945–PRESENT

APR 25, 2019 / FLUXUS
In this course, students will question what art really is through the eyes of George Maciunas, the “Father of Fluxus Art.” Described as the most radical movement of the ’60s we will see how artists, performers, composers and dancers challenged the conventional notions of traditional art forms.

MAY 16, 2019 / INSTALLATION + LAND ART
In the ’60s and ’70s installation and land art sought to challenge our views of art in space and our relationship with the environment. Artists like Andy Goldsworthy and Robert Smithson used land and found pieces to create gigantic pieces of environmental art. As a group we will create and construct an installation of our own.
