Asian Art Survey
Course No. ACD 372 Credits: 3.0
This course serves as a "survey" or a window for the art of multiple cultures. This lecture/exercise/discussion-style course explores the art and visual culture of Asia, focusing on India, Japan and China. Political, religious, social, and visual aspects of art will be stressed in class. In order to understand the art and civilization of these three countries, we will look at art objects ranging from ancient archaeological finds, medieval architecture to modern and contemporary art. Subjects such as women artists, performing arts and animation will also be discussed in this course. The content of this course will be generally divided into pre-Modern, Modern, and Contemporary eras in which art and visual culture will be discussed with geographic perspectives. As the semester progresses, some additional readings and films may be assigned. Each student is encouraged to find examples learned in the course and apply them to his/her intellectual development. Visual Culture Emphasis course.
