Art Here, Art There: Detroit, Chicago, and Mexico City
The great migration: travelling virtually to Detroit, Chicago, and Mexico City, students will learn about their unique, cosmopolitan visual arts cultures. Detroit and Chicago were both significantly shaped by the Great Migration of African Americans from the American South. Later, Mexicans immigrated in waves to both cities. Mexico City has received artists and artisans from Europe and Latin America for decades, creating a robust art scene.
This online course is part of the series Art Here, Art There about modern and contemporary art in major creative centers and markets outside of New York City. While domestic and international travel is restricted due to the pandemic and visits to galleries, museums, and fairs, remain either restricted or non-existent, this series allows art lovers to explore art all over the world from the comfort of their homes.
Art Here, Art There goes live inside artist studios, galleries and, when possible, museum exhibitions to give students a first-hand look at art-making in a variety of contexts and interaction with today’s leaders and innovators. The cultural context of each city will be visited to enrich the understanding of art.
