Modern and Contemporary Art in London

Carole Machin
Course Description
This course highlights how, over the last 30 years, Britain has become a vibrant and fertile international center for the visual arts. Through the work on display in the museums and galleries of London, the course will attempt to relate the current confusing range of artistic styles with the revolutionary ideas of the first 25 years of the twentieth century, the impact of two world wars and more recent social and global events. Some reference will also be made to parallel developments in architecture.
