ARTH 154 - Approaches to African Art

FC ARHU CD WINT
4 credits
This course serves as an introduction to the visual cultures of Africa and its Diasporas. Proceeding through a series of thematic case studies, students will explore African arts through critical lenses such as performance, ritual, sexuality, and identity. Special attention will be paid to cross-cultural influences, impacts and legacies of empires, slavery, and colonialism, and the contemporary art market. Visits to the Allen Memorial Art Museum are a central component of the course.
This course is appropriate for new students.
