ART 357 - Gender and the Visual Arts

2013-2014 Catalog Year

This course introduces students to some major women artists and to feminist debates within art history. The course identifies the institutions and processes that construct the gender of the artist: academic and avant-garde artistic training and collectives; the rise of national academies; the formation of the art historical canon; the hierarchy of subject matter and the media of art. It emphasizes the ways in which seeing and looking structure our understanding about masculinity, femininity and sexuality.

PREREQ: Upper division standing and ART 250 OR 251 OR WST 200, or instructor permission.
