Contemporary art is an ever-changing entity that ranges from politically engaged activism to the awe-inspiring spectacle to the stationary pleasures of painting. This class navigates the field by exploring contemporary work on exhibit in NYC during fall 2024. Artists under discussion include Jenny Holzer, LaToya Ruby Frazier, and Lyle Ashton Harris. This class is a seminar; participation is required. The final assignment is a proposed curatorial project. The New School’s own art collection serves as a resource along with selected readings, videos and guest speakers.
