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.

I really enjoyed it, especially having memory checks. This is something that I didn't have at art school and it would have been super useful. I also had a blast during the online party =)

A great course to take for those who, like me, are not that familiar with contemporary art and would like to expand their horizons, see some cool projects/art and hear from the artists.

J'ai adoré ce cours. Je connaissais mal l'Art contemporain et j'avais beaucoup d'a priori. C'est cours qui remue, qui interroge, c'est une belle aventure et une belle découverte

This course expanded my knowledge on contemporary art, artists, their art making process, and why they made their art. I plan on utilzing this information in my art classroom.

Unless you are a regular at MoMA you will learn about a wide range of artists and media that reflect a wide variety of contexts relevant to the world that we all live in.

Agradeço pela oportunidade de refletir sobre a arte conectada com territórios criativos férteis que me permitiram imaginar uma arte contemporânea, periférica e marginal.

Will help you broaden your perception of what is and isn't contemporary art. It will also introduce you to mediums we don't often think of as a measure of art.

Before I took this course, I didn't really understand what contemporary art was. Although short and not at all comprehensive, this course is eye-opening.
