4.673 Installation Art

Class Info

Focuses on a specific genre of contemporary art that produces environments or room-sized immersive forms rather than portable "art objects." Installation art is viewed from a historical perspective, as a rejection of the modernist aesthetic of purity and the neutral white gallery space. Its corollary in site-specific art is explored in relation to previous exhibition models such as natural history displays or merchandising conventions. Graduate students will be expected to produce a final research paper.

This class has 4.601 as a prerequisite.

4.673 will not be offered this semester. It will be instructed by C. Jones.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
