The exhibition is where modern and contemporary art meets the public.This course looks at the history and theory of exhibiting new art in the past 150 years, starting with the French Salon and the independent alternatives that challenged it (Courbet, the Impressionists, and Post-Impressionists), through avant-garde exhibitions (Expressionists, Dada, and Surrealists), installation art and alternative exhibition strategies, and leading to today's art fairs and biennials (Art Basel, Documenta, the Venice Biennale, the Whitney Biennial, etc.). We will cover historic exhibits including the Armory Show and Hitler's Degenerate Art exhibit. Individual and group projects will research specific recent exhibitions, as we consider such issues as design, audience, and critical reception. At times this course may be cross-tallied at the graduate level as CAH 6400. Additional work required for graduate level credit is outlined in the course syllabus.
