Countering conventional claims about the purity of abstraction, this course focuses on the political and social potential of abstract art from 1960 to the present. We will examine a range of media to explore how artists convey meaning through the language of abstraction and material choices. The course will include case studies on the following artists: Donald Judd, Frank Stella, Agnes Martin, Byron Kim, Glenn Ligon, David Hammons, Harmony Hammond, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Maya Lin, Rachel Whiteread, Zarina Hashmi, El Anatsui, Julie Mehretu and Mark Bradford.
