What we'll cover in class
Each week will start by looking at the work of a contemporary artist, using their art as a springboard for exploring facets of antipodean art history.
With a focus on painting, artists likely to arise in class discussions will include figures like Gretchen Albrecht, Brook Andrew, Rita Angus, William Barak, Gordon Bennett, Kushana Bush, Shane Cotton, Ian Fairweather, Star Gossage, Frances Hodgkins, Ralph Hotere, Helen Johnson, Robyn Kahukiwa, Emily Karaka, Richard Killeen, Emily Kame Kngwarreye, Colin McCahon, Mandy Martin, Judy Millar, Albert Namatjira, Sidney Nolan, Margaret Preston, Lisa Reihana, John Reynolds, Imants Tillers, Gordon Walters, and Judy Watson.
By starting each class with a visual analysis of contemporary art, the course aims to generate a greater appreciation for the work of today’s artists as well as a deeper understanding of the importance of art history to the ongoing cultural life of the nation. More immediately, it’ll make your next visit to an art gallery all the more rewarding.
