Modern Art in Paris
Modern Art In Paris offers an introduction to the history of Western modern art and provides a foundation in the knowledge and skills of art history. It focuses on 18 leading artists of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, from Édouard Manet to Jean-Michel Basquiat. These artists have been selected according to their relevance in art history and accessibility in the permanent collections and temporary exhibitions of Paris's various museums and foundations. Thus, the students will be able to see directly a vast range of artworks during the two-weeks course while upgrading their art appreciation. This selection also aims at exploring the diversity
of modern creations: from painting and sculpture to photography, performance, installation, architecture, and design. This course has no specific prerequisites. The course articulates theory and practice in a supportive classroom environment that promotes participative learning. Thus, proactive class participation is highly encouraged. This student-centered approach to learning welcomes all kinds of inquiries.
