Tappan Hall 270
MW 11:30 - 1:00
3 Credit Seminar

Meets with HISTART 689.004

In anticipation of a significant exhibition on Korean art opening at a major New York institution, this seminar will explore new areas of research this exhibition and other recent curatorial interventions have raised with regard to postwar Korean art. A mandatory field trip to New York will comprise part of this course. Close study of objects will be stressed in hopes of cultivating a deeper rhetorical framework for thinking about Korean art outside received theoretical frameworks. Evaluation will consist of class participation and two papers. Prior coursework in art history and/or Korean culture is recommended

Class Format: Seminar with some lecturing

Course Requirements: Participation, short papers

Intended Audience: Upperclass (At least juniors) and graduate students with previous coursework in Art History, Museum Studies and/or Asian Studies
