History of Art and Visual CultureHAVC 141C Modern Art: Pop to Present

Surveys the art forms and critical ideas that have shaped artistic practice from the 1950s to the present, including an overview of the socio-political, economic, and cultural forces that inspire artists to articulate human experience in visual form. Examines how popular culture in the post-war United States became intertwined with visual art, forming into the artistic genre known as Pop Art. This important aesthetic shift challenged the political, ideological, and representational value systems that inform our understanding of so-called "high art."
