Fall 2017 Off Campus Art Course Descriptions

AHMS 2255 Y - Art and Popular Culture

***NOTE: This course is being offered on the CALGARY campus!!!***

There has long been a two‑way interaction between the "high" and "low" art in western society. This course will explore aspects of this relationship during the late 20th century, focussing on the influence of "avant‑garde" art and design upon mass media and commercial culture. Lecture topics will examine some of the discreet ways that the "popular" and "high" art have both renewed and interrogated each other, as the line that divides them grows ever more hazy in the 21st century.

NOTE: Not counted in the 13-course Arts & Science Art major or the 27 core courses in the BFA (Art).

PREREQUISITE: Second-year standing (a minimum of 30.0 credit hours) or in the Post Diploma program.
