AHY 3310 - African-American Art

Credits: 4
This course will focus on two main themes of African-American Art: the art of African-Americans themselves, but also how the discipline of Art History has suppressed and marginalized these artists as well as black subjects in paintings in scholarly discourse. The course will examine art forms that are not traditionally considered “high art,” such as pottery from the plantation era and quilts. While we will examine African-American artists of the past, students will also look at contemporary art works by African-American artists who use their art to confront difficult themes of race and to challenge racial stereotypes. Examples of artists we will consider are Edmonia Lewis, Kara Walker, Jacob Lawrence and many others.
