Class 1: What is Contemporary Art?

Kicking off our first module is an introduction to the precursors of Modernism and early 20th-century avant-garde movements. Starting from the groundbreaking technological changes that allowed painters like Monet to produce the masterpieces of Impressionism, we will dive into what inspired the emergence of Expressionism and Fauvism at the start of the 20th century.
