VPA 311 - Arts of World Cultures

Units: 3
Explores contemporary world cultural practices ranging from indigenous expressions to new electronic forms in a global and multi-disciplinary context. Encompasses the arts from regional cultures throughout the world, including Africa, the Americas, Asia, and Europe examined through the multiple viewpoints of gender, race, class, and sexuality. Explores diverse cultural practices shaped by memories and aspirations as well as by personal, collective, and mythic histories. These cultural practices offer transformative paradigms for social engagement and creativity. The exploration of global art theories and practices will assist students in developing their analytical, perceptual, and creative skills. This exploration, in turn, will encourage students to expand the power, clarity, and range of their own voices and visions.
