ART 3606: Cross-Cultural Encounters (2024-2025)

View all ART classes

This course critically examines points of artistic contact between the West and the "Other" since the rise of colonialism. We'll consider how colonial occupation, global economic expansion and technological advancement have transformed global visual culture. We’ll take a two-pronged approach, exploring both how Western colonizers appropriated other traditions, and how colonized/impacted cultures (including those of China, Japan, Africa and the early Americas) adapted and appropriated in turn. This course will also consider the ethics of museum display as it pertains to non-Western cultures. Typically offered: Alternate Years.
