ARH 341K ARH 341K. Modern Art of Mexico. 3 Hours.
Same as Latin American Studies 327 (Topic 2). Mexican visual culture from the late nineteenth century through 1968. Emphasis on the emergence of modernist avant-gardes and popular entertainment, and their ambivalent relationship to state, church, and market. Also explores how self-consciously negotiating the tension between native and international influences, artists, critics, and curators contributes to notions of Lo Mexicano, or "Mexicanness." Three lecture hours a week for one semester. Art History 341K and Latin American Studies 327 (Topic 2) may not both be counted.
