The roots of contemporary art are found in the art movements of the 1960s and 1970s. We examine this time period through lectures, images, films, and readings. Pop, minimalism, conceptual art, fluxus, and performance art are some of the topics covered in this course. Artists discussed include Andy Warhol, Joseph Beuys, Yoko Ono, Carolee Schneemann, and Marina Abramovic. New York's thriving art scene and The New School's own art collection serve as resources. The final assignment is a proposal for a curatorial project of the student's own design.
