Contemporary Art: The Big Picture

« back to classes page
Open your mind and discover the exciting world of Contemporary Art. In this study group, we will examine multiple forms of contemporary art including photography, painting, performance, sculpture, installation, film, public exhibitions, video, and video game art. This fast-paced study group will examine ten artists from Brazil, China, Germany, Iceland, Serbia, and the United States. Members will get to know, understand, and appreciate the powerful messages of these artists by viewing, before each session, interviews, documentaries, and/or short videos of these artists using discussions and critiques by well-informed art historians. The text we will use is The Big Picture, Contemporary Art in 10 Works by 10 Artists (Prestel, 2017) by Art Historian Matthew Israel. In this study group, guest speakers  will enhance your understanding and appreciation of Contemporary Art. A guest speaker on Video Game Art and a field trip to The Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago to view works by four of the artists will enhance your understanding and appreciation of Contemporary Art.
