Description: This course introduces the major developments, figures, and works of late modernism beginning with the shift, during the 1940s, from Paris to New York as the cultural center of avant-garde. The class charts the rise of Abstract Expressionism in the 1940s and 50s and follows its divided legacies in the 1960s and 70s. We will examine the post-modern debates of the 1980s and the 90s and conclude with a look at trends in contemporary art.
