Appreciation of Contemporary and Digital Art (Trend and Application) (15 Hours)
The development of Metaverse, Virtual reality and NFT is deeply related with contemporary art. After being immersed in Modernism, Western art has the sublime and outstanding value to keep away from the side effect of technology and civilization. Paul Gauguin is the remarkable one. On the contrary, Futurism emphasized dynamism, efficiency and speedy scientific progress; for example: Pop Art, Photorealism and Minimalism. Technology, industrial materials and commercial elements were further used to achieve the diversified development of Postmodernism. New art forms across different media such as conceptual art, performance art, environmental art, installation art, and video art appeared one after another, while digital art has also emerged. This course will introduce the trend and development of contemporary art and its application under globalization. Last but not least, the cultural phenomenon of NFT and its meaning will be analyzed.
