AMST 451 - The ‘Primitive’ in Modern Art


This class will provide students with an alternative understanding of art and art history beginning in the modern era late in the nineteenth century and continuing forward to the 21st century. The study of Primitivism will work to introduce students to early Western concepts of race, art and identity. The investigation of methods with which Indigenous artists and scholars challenge these notions will provide a new lens for understanding the history of colonization, the politics of representation, and various definitions of race and art. Also offered as FAIR 451Y.

Prerequisites & Notes: FAIR 202A or AMST 301 or instructor permission.
