Art Beyond Borders
Taking the exhibition Vida Americana: Mexican Muralists Remake American Art, 1925–1945 as a point of departure, this course explores how artists challenge conventional ideas of citizenship and belonging while creating new forms of community. If art has, on one hand, been thought of as a nation’s most precious heritage, it has also provided a powerful means for reflecting on and reimagining forms of political inclusion and exclusion.
In these intensive, single-session courses, noted experts provide an overview of key topics in modern and contemporary art.
How to Look
Develop your powers of attentiveness by learning simple tools for observing and describing works of art. Course participants will have special access to the Museum galleries after hours.
