WHO’S AFRAID OF CONTEMPORARY ART? STILL AND CHEW

Through lectures and guided gallery visits, this course will demystify the challenging world of contemporary art and encourage debate. It will explore why artists began using unconventional materials and processes; how to look at conceptual art; where contemporary art is displayed and what it all means!


What did Michael Craig-Martin mean when he exhibited a glass of water and said it was an oak tree? Why did John Latham invite his students to eat an art text book? By what criteria should we judge a conceptual art piece? This session traces the growth of this art form from Duchamp’s urinal through the performance and mail art of the 1960s and 70s to the 90s yBa movement to today’s Sophie Calle.
