Fine Arts (FAVA) - Art Against the Academy

FAVA 2236  Art Against the Academy


Any 15 credits completed.


FAVA 2235


Three hours of lecture per week for one term.




In this course, students explore subversive art practices during the “long” nineteenth century (1789 – 1914). In particular, students examine how dominant modes of institutional art production were reshaped to reflect a wider awareness of global visual cultures following colonization and imperialism; the destabilization of power dynamics within the discourses that framed aesthetics; and the shifting political and social realities of industrialized life.  This course may be credited towards Gender Equality and Social Justice.
