This six-week course focuses on “Artists’ Communities” and explores the informal networks, communities, and movements that develop among artists working with similar concerns and a shared sensibility. It begins by looking back to historical groups such as the Stieglitz circle, and then examines the Earth Art movement, the Pictures Generation, and more contemporary communities.This course includes two guided tours of downtown galleries.
