ART 375 - Race, Ethnicity, Class, and Gender in American Art

This course provides an introduction to the diversity of twentieth century visual culture of the United States, within the historical, social, and cultural contexts in which it is created. It will analyze the intersection and the social dynamics of race and ethnicity, along with gender and class, and how these shaped the experience of American Artists and their audiences at various historical moments during the past hundred years. Studying the work of Native American, African-American, Asian-American, and Latino-American artists vis-a-vis the mainstream US art and culture, wewil examine how specific understanding of race, ethnicity, class, and gender by these groups informed their artistic production and shaped their individual and group identities. Prerequisite(s): At least one art history course or one course in either WGSS or AMST. (4 Credits)
