Brief description

This is the final Core Art History module.
This new Historical Perspective on Contemporary Art leads you through the developments in art from late 19th century when concepts of “Modern Art” developed as artists experimented with new approaches to art. The aim is to explore how and why art practices changed and the significant impact of earlier artists on the work of 21st century artists. There are lots of optional
and compulsory tasks throughout the course to help you develop your own timeline of developments and recognize trends. It includes references to our own contemporary artists, but the focus is on the broader historical context for developments. An assignment is assessed half way through, and the final research project submitted with the rest of the coursework at the end of the module.
