ARTH 223 - Introduction to Non-Western Art


Credits: 3

Introduction to Non-Western Art surveys the visual art traditions of selected Non-Western cultures from ancient to contemporary times. "Non-Western" refers to cultures that initially developed outside the realm of Western European culture.  Artworks may be selected widely or in a more focused manner from Africa, Asia, the Pacific region, and cultures of the Americas (Indigenous/Native American).  Different types of visual arts will be used to analyze how politics, religion, economics, social organization, artistic influences, and international trade have interacted with the major themes in each culture's artistic traditions.  Differences between Western and non-Western theories of art, aesthetics, values, and use will be discussed and will form the background for understanding how different people react to art from cultures other than their own.
