Making Sense of the Art World: How Did Art Get Mixed Up in Politics?

When: Tue., March 28, 6-7:30 p.m.

Join us for a series of classes at the ICA at VCU where we will explore together how to see and understand contemporary art. Explore the intersection of politics and contemporary art in this second course. For centuries, art has taken sides in the political struggles of its day. Art history has been the story of artists who sought to be the vanguard not just of artistic change, but of social and political change too. That is what we mean when we talk about art being avant-garde. How and why is politics so present in the art of our time?
