|Lecturer||Office hours for students|
|Giuseppe Di Natale|
Assigned to the Degree Course
The purpose of the course, spanning from Neoclassicism to 1980’s, is to deepen (a certain) aspects of contemporary artistic production and (it has the objective of) supplying methodological, historical, critical as well as bibliographical tools, for the analysis and the comprehension of the works of the artists of the aforementioned period. Particular attention will be dedicated to Abstract art, from the origins to the second post-war.
The course will investigate episodes of the Abstract Art from the origins to the second post-war. Throughout the analysis of this period, we will deepen the focus on wider cultural and art history topics – such as the spreading of critical studies and visual “trends”, as well as the dialog, either direct or indirect between artists, art historians, and art critics – and we will study, from a different perspective a selection of Twentieth century art movements. The study of theoretical and methodological debate of the artistic trends of the Twentieth century, with an attention to the visual influence and intertextuality is an integral part of the course. The last part of each lesson will be dedicated to the identification and discussions of an artwork, not inherent to the monographic course.
