ARH 223 - African American Art

1 course unit
This course surveys art produced by African Americans from the late eighteenth century to the present.  The historical, political, and social conditions that shaped art production by African Americans are investigated, from slavery through the Great Migration, and the Black Power Movement to postmodernism.  Themes to consider include problems of representation, including racial stereotypes, primitivism, and the audience.  This course moves African American art and artists from the art historical margins to the center to account for the way race influences art’s production and reception.
Meets general academic requirement HU and DE.
