Crash Course on Contemporary Art: Painting’s Environments

SAT, May 19, 2018
2–4 pm

Third Floor Seminar Room

This series of intensive, single-session courses, led by noted art historians and educators, offers participants an overview of current ideas and practices in contemporary American art. Each session focuses on a particular artistic medium through the lens of a timely theme that animates the work of emerging and established living artists.

Participants are welcome to register for individual sessions or for the entire series.

Crash Course on Contemporary Art: Painting’s Environments
This session considers an environmental impulse in artistic practices. We will look at the relationship between artworks and their surroundings, how artists are creating new kinds of spaces, and art’s interactions with the ecological systems that we inhabit.

Instructor: Suzanne Hudson is Associate Professor of Art History and Fine Arts at the University of Southern California. Her previous books include Robert Ryman: Used Paint and Contemporary Art: 1989–Present, and she is a regular contributor to Artforum.
