ARHT 204 - INTRODUCTION TO NON WESTERN ART TRADITIONS
This course is an introduction to art with roots outside of European traditions. We look at classic examples from Native American, Caribbean, and African civilizations, and we consider the meaning of "tradition" as it relates to past and present global cultures. As we explore these very different cultures we will also be thinking about what roles art can play in society: How is art central to religion, entertainment, gender, class, and other factors that help create cultural "identities"? How is the look of artistic forms related to the histories of cultures? And how has cultural mixture and adaptation been a central feature of global traditional arts? Each unit will include an experiential component of visiting art in NY/NJ area collections.
