ARH-340 Gender in Modern and Contemporary Art

This course covers art from the late 18th century to the present that is concerned with gender imagery, gender identity, and sexuality. It will consider examples drawn from Romanticism, Modernist and Postmodernist movements, and will include Feminist collaboratives such as Womanhouse, activist groups like the Guerilla Girls, and artists whose work expresses their identification with the LGBTQI community. Some prior art history or upper-level humanities or social sciences course work is recommended.
