Log in to post comments Spring 2022 ARGD 4080 Special Topics in Graphic Design: Book Arts & Letterpress Eileen Wallace | CRN 61477 This course will explore letterpress printing as it relates directly to formal and experimental typographic design using a range of traditional and modern techniques. The course will use analog, hand set type in conjunction with experimental and digital designs that will ultimately all be printed by hand. Letterpress printing and hand work has seen a revival in the field of commercial graphic design and this course will explore the traditional typographic methods and technical foundations that inform the digital platforms most prevalent today, allowing for a richer and more holistic understanding of both fields. ARHI 3077 Latin American Modern Art Andrew | CRN 60726 Tarsila do Amaral, Abaporu (The Man Who Eats), 1928 This course is a broad introduction to Latin American visual culture from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, with particular attention to the art and history of Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, and Cuba. Lectures will present works of art as witnesses, documents, and evidence of the legacies of the region’s revolutions, economic development, and of its diverse indigenous histories, colonial pasts, and post-colonial presents. Acknowledging the various constructions of indigenous, national, and global identities amid shifting political, social, and economic forces, we will identify artistic vanguards particular to Latin America that helped shape the history of International Modernism, including Social Realism, Indigenism, Mexican Muralism, Surrealism, Geometric Abstraction and Concrete art.
