This course serves as an introduction to cultural theory to art practitioners. It begins with discussing the relationship between art and theory. Major cultural theorists are introduced through their reading of selected artworks. Reading art as a cultural text, this course examines it in modern, postmodern, gender, and urban contexts. Photographs, architecture, film, video, painting, sculpture, poems, and essays are used throughout the course.
