The Arts in Context (DNCE 2215)

This course introduces students to the most significant developments in Twentieth Century western visual and performing arts forms. Beginning with an examination of the influences of the Viennese School, students survey Modernism, Expressionism, and examine prominent artists such as Diaghilev, Picasso, Stravinsky, Martha Graham, and many others. Later in the course, students look at post World War II reconstruction and the arrival of Postmodernism and Minimalism. Students explore the interaction of disciplines that have inspired, gave impetus to, and critically shaped our contemporary cultural artistic practices. This survey course encompasses diverse practices across the areas of dance, music, theatre, literature and visual arts.

This course is part of the full-time Dance Program.
