TOP REVIEWS FROM WHAT IS CONTEMPORARY ART?
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.
Outstanding collection of artistic philanthropists, huge awakening of Visual Arts as a vehicle to profession and put light on global and social issues.
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 =)
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.
