Art is everywhere and belongs to everyone. Artists play an ever-changing role as catalysts, visionaries, provocateurs, healers and tricksters. This course will be an exploration of contemporary art’s response to conceptual, aesthetic, social and political ideas and forces. We will highlight celebrated and deliberately anonymous artists working in a range of materials and contexts — from Kehinde Wiley taking over Times Square to global responses to the pandemic.
