CONCEPTS OF MODERN ART
As public interest in modern art continues to grow, there is a need for a place that is engaging, offering not only information and ideas about modern art, but also explaining its contemporary relevance and history. We will navigate through time, discovering artistic styles that define Modern Art from Picasso and Matisse to Chagall, Pollock, Kandinsky, Duchamp, Mondrian and so much more….
What we call "Modern Art" lasted for an entire century and involved dozens of different art movements, embracing almost everything from pure abstraction to hyperrealism; from anti-art schools to classical painting and sculpture; from Art Nouveau to Bauhaus and Pop Art. So great was the diversity that it is difficult to think of any unifying characteristic which defines the era. But if there is anything that separates modern artists from both the earlier traditionalists and later postmodernists, it is their belief that art mattered. And those who came after the Modern period (1970 onwards), the so-called "postmodernists", largely rejected the idea that art (or life) has any intrinsic value.
TERM 1 - 2022
I propose two types of Art History classes :
An 8-week series (one on Tuesday evening and one on Saturday morning), and a one-off class (on Saturday morning).
If you are hesitant to sign up for an 8-week series, please try one of the one-off classes.
