Survey of Contemporary Art examines the development of the formal and conceptual concerns that have shaped 21st Century art. Distinguished by the absence of a uniform organizing principle or label, contemporary art is a diverse and eclectic combination of subjects, concepts, materials, and methods. Students explore the notion of what art is and how it can be made through the consideration of ideas, practices and concepts that are unique to our contemporary world.
