Art and Communication

Spring 2022

Taught By: Zed Adams

Section: A

CRN: 11813

Credits: 3

It is a commonplace to say that art allows for a distinctive form of communication, irreplaceable by other forms. We say that pictures cannot be put into words, and that metaphors cannot be translated into literal speech. In this seminar, we will examine a number of competing accounts of what might make artistic communication distinctive, with a special focus on the use of color in visual art and the use of metaphor in literature.
