AAS 242 Introduction to Afro-American Art is a survey course which investigates the history of African American art and visual culture from the colonial era to our current time, with a particular focus on twentieth century art. With attention to various art historical perspectives and methods, and to the intersections of race, class, gender, and sexuality that impact the lives and work of African American artists and their audiences, the course analyzes various art forms including painting, sculpture, photography, folk art, conceptual and performance art, and art as social practice. It examines works of art that manifest the theories and politics of movements such as Black Liberation, Feminism, and Postmodernism. The goal is to understand how African American art acted, and continues to act, as a form of self-expression and collective empowerment and as a means of resistance against various forms of marginalization.
