ART H 462 Studies in Latin American Art (3 per semester/maximum of 6)

(BA) This course meets the Bachelor of Arts degree requirements.

This course analyzes the art and architecture created in Latin America from the first moments of European contact (1492) until the modern era. Each time it is taught, the class will refine its focus to study the artistic production of a specific time period (such as the early colonial period, the nineteenth century, or the modern period), a specific geographic expanse (such as the modern nation state of Mexico), or perhaps a distinct cultural group (indigenous artists). Core to this course is the study of the interaction of seemingly divergent social groups and the ways in which artistic production both reflects and reinforces the resulting cultural systems.
