Art Here, Art There: Los Angeles, Capetown, Dubai
Becoming contemporary: Los Angeles, Capetown, and Dubai have all been shaped by economic growth and globalization, which in turn has shaped their art scenes. Los Angeles is best known as an education and production center, Capetown has become known for its museums, and Dubai (and the UAE) is a major art fair destination showcasing art from the region and globally.
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.
