Acerca del Curso

What is contemporary art? In this course, you’ll consider this question through more than 70 works of art made between 1980 and the present, with a focus on art from the past decade. You’ll hear directly from artists, architects, and designers from around the globe about their creative processes, materials, and inspiration. Five themes serve as your guide: Media from Television to the Internet, Territories & Transit, Materials & Making, Agency, and Power. You’ll look at 3-D–printed glass and fiber sculptures, performances in a factory and a museum, painted portraits—as well as those made with artificial intelligence—and interventions into television and video games. And much more, all drawn from the collection of The Museum of Modern Art. Come along as artists invite us into their studios, out into their neighborhoods, and to experiment with the materials they use. Not only will you develop a deeper understanding of how artists work today, you’ll also explore some of their many approaches to the pressing issues and questions of our time. By taking this course, you’ll gain confidence to look at contemporary art wherever you encounter it and make connections to your own life or creative practice....

Excellent, informative course, with much diversity. I laughed and smiled, felt awe and inspiration, cried and felt the pain and the beautiful defiance of pieces I might have never appreciated before.

Very interesting and easily consumable resources, lots of video, audio, and short text so it was very fun and accessible. They have a good diversity of artists across ethnicity, sex, and country.

After taking the Modern Art and Ideas course, I was slightly disappointed with the outcomes after finishing the course. With 5 instructors, you would expect a lot, but it just was not there. I do like how there was plenty of room to learn about a diverse range of art and mediums from artists around the world. However, there was very little room to apply critical thinking skills, and discuss my learnings. I am a lazy person, however, there are optional reflections, and almost nobody participated. This made it impossible to learn and engage with other learners because no one cared to participate and put effort into writing.

I loved the course, it reinforced my thinking that art cannot be defined because it changes all the time: it is alive, it is organic, it represents, reflects and criticizes around the human being, the human tasks in relation to himself but also in relation to its environment, its past, its present and its future. Contemporary art reflects this constant change and this openness of the term art. I liked learning about new artists and new works from artists I already knew. The topics touched by art are much more diverse than I thought, art really is very broad and it opened up many new ways of approaching contemporary art.

The units were well planned. The art chosen were varied and well-presented. I really liked the video commentaries by the artists discussing their own work. I do feel I have a better understanding re "what is Contemporary Art?". The course could be improved with more instructor commentary and guidance. Also an improvement would be if there were a way for the participants to be communicating to each other and discussing common challenges or perspectives. But perhaps - that is the limitation of this platform. Thank you very much. I will be taking more classes here.

Interesting content delivered through a guided journey of examples of contemporary artworks in the MoMA collection, however, I feel the course ultimately fails to answer the elusive question "What is Contemporary Art?" In the end art is subjective, and each individual must come to their own conclusion. Nonetheless, a journey worth taking, it certainly opened my mind to the idea "that the role of the artist is really, quite frankly, as much as a scientist, to define what life is and what life can be" (Anicka Yi).

An excellent course and a great way for someone to truly get a great taste of what Contemporary Art really is. I thought that it was just a time-period. I was wrong. Each 'block of instruction' shows different styles and ideas on this subject. If you enjoy art or even if you do not enjoy art, will enjoy this course.

El Nuevo arte no siempre nos agrada, a pesar de que registra nuevas experiencias y formas de pensar, paradigmas nuevos y actuar innovador ante las penurias de la vida. Pero estoy muy agradecido de tener la oportunidad de tomar este curso, que es muy útil como acervo cultural

Overall it is a great journey for beginners to get acquainted with contemporary art and learn its ways of expression. I would just add that a tool for uploadıng our creations and discuss them as a peer review assignment would be a great tool. Thanks a lot for your efforts.

Lo único que me parece que podrían mejorar es la comunicación con los participantes porque tuve problemas para ver varios videos, que al final no pude mirar y nunca supe como comunicárselos, no sé si haya algún tipo de soporte que ya exista pero no lo encontré.

Muy bueno el curso, muy buena la selección de autores, sin embargo, agregaría a esta algunos nombres contemporáneos que están alcanzando gran reconocimiento: Viene a mi mente Olafur Eliasson, quien no es mencionado en ninguna sección.

Very much enjoyed this course, particularly the last 3 weeks. Some weeks were a little long but I imagined the interactive elements of the course, e.g. quizzes and forums, as well as all the resources available for further learning.

It could have more theorethical approach, some concepts that we could use to understand a work or just so we could have some specialist information when looking to some art work. But it's a very inspiring course.

The course gave me completely new perspectives on the use artists make of a variety of materials including audio, advertising boards, film, personal movement and photographs.
