授業の概要・目的 Since the early 20th century we have witnessed a number of artistic movements: the birth of conceptual art, abstract expressionism, the rise of pop art and minimalism, the extension into earth, body, the movement toward performance, video, installation, and public art. Amidst all these transformations, how does contemporary art continue to make meanings, communicate, become significant to us? This course looks at various topics in contemporary art and closely examines how art functions in our society. Artistic practices in Europe, North America, Japan and other Asian countries are mainly examined.

成績評価の方法・観点 (1) Active Participation: Students will be expected to keep up with the readings listed on the class schedule and participate in class discussions and write comments. (The class schedule with the web links to the images and readings will be updated regularly.) (30%)

(2) A self-guided field trip to one exhibition and the following presentation and paper.
Each student is required to visit one of the exhibitions suggested by the instructor in class.
Choose one artwork that you particularly like.
2-1. Presentation: Present the chosen work to class.
(1) Show the image. Provide basic information such as the year, the size, and the medium.
(2) Explain why that work interests you. Try to use the terms you will have learned in class. (10%)

2-2. Project Paper (minimum 800 words)
The paper is more than the written version of your presentation. Rather, it is a research paper in which you are required to do the following two things. (1) Discuss the artwork by referring at least to one other work you encountered in class. (2) Find a critical article about the work and engage with it, that is, discuss what the article informs you and/or how you agree or disagree with the writer. You need to choose an article written by an art professional such as a critic, curator, art historian, and researcher. The comments by amateurs we find online are not eligible. Please attach the hard copies of the articles or give the URLs at the end of your paper. (30%).

(3) Final Exam: Will be given in the last class. The final exam will consist of image identifications as well as some questions that will be answered in an essay form (30%).
