Course Description

Looking at London: Contemporary Art in the British Capital

Instructor(s): Kate Hauser, Art History

Experience London through the eyes of its contemporary artists! Looking at contemporary art gives us the opportunity to learn about the artists who make it, the ideas behind it, how it gets bought and sold, and above all, how it represents and shapes the singular city, London.  Therefore, you will get a taste of Victorian England; a glimpse into colonial Britain; an understanding of the finances involved in dealing and collecting contemporary art; and an awareness of the diverse populations of London, all while taking advantage of one of the best sites for contemporary art in the West.
