ARTH 5120 Graduate Seminar in art Criticism and Theory


This course is a seminar in the fundamental problems and theories of modern and contemporary art. The student reads basic texts by artists and examines major philosophical and aesthetic statements from Dewey to Schapiro, Rosalind Krauss, and Susan Sontag. The emphasis is on style, the nature of critique, and the ideas of our epoch. Poet-critics such as O’Hara and Ashbery are scrutinized in the light of their precursors from Baudelaire to Breton and Apollinaire.
