Description

MODERN ART HISTORY: WOMEN AND POC
Liesa Lietzke
4 Sessions>> Thursdays, September 5- September 26
6:00-9:00pm, 16C, $195

You may have heard of Andy Warhol but not Idelle Weber or Rosalyn Drexler. Salvador Dali, but not Remedios Varo or Elsa Schiaparelli?Jackson Pollock, but not Alma Thomas or Thomas Sills.

There are whole dimensions of Modernism that have suffered neglect, intentional erasure, within canonical Modernism. This course attempts to restore the legacy of overlooked nonwhite artist and female artist of the 20th Century in Europe and America. The class will examine Expressionism, the German and Russian Avant-Garde movements, Cubism, Futurism, Dada, Surrealism, The Harlem Renaissance, Abstract Expressionism, AfriCOBRA, Spiral, Hippie Modernism, Pop Art and more. This is not an exhaustive survey, but it is a necessary supplement that I hope, someday, will no longer be necessary.

FAQs

What materials (if any) will I need to bring to class?
Each course requires specific materials that we ask you bring to your first class session so you can get started making right away. Materials lists are available approximately two weeks prior to the course start date. Visit the SFAI website here, click on your course title, and then click on the blue "Materials List" link underneath the course dates. If you have any questions regarding materials, please contact Public Education Staff.

What are my transport/parking options getting to San Francisco Art Institute?
All classes, unless otherwise noted, meet at 800 Chestnut Street, between Jones and Leavenworth. You can find directions to campus on the SFAI website.

SFAI is located in a residential neighborhood, and free two-hour parking is available on all of the streets immediately surrounding the school. The two-hour restriction cuts off at 9 pm, so evening Public Education students do not need to move their car, unless you arrive prior to 7 pm.

SFAI is easily accessible via public transportation, with Muni bus lines #30 Stockton, #45 Union, and #47 Van Ness located within a few blocks of campus.
