Discover the works of artists Carolee Schneemann, Andy Warhol, Joseph Beuys, Valie Export/Eva Hesse. Despite differences in their artistic language, they were all striving to find a new language of expression and intellectual pursuit. The object of this course will be understanding their individual work, and seeing how their art philosophies and practices follow a rich artistic tradition, as well as how their production fits into a larger trajectory of art practices. Each session will serve as a stand-alone, in-depth exploration of life, work and contribution of each featured artist to the wider aesthetic discourse — and unlike art surveys, we will not be focusing on art movements or historic periods. There are no prerequisites for this class. Completion of Part 1 NOT required.
