What is contemporary art? In this course, you’ll consider this question through more than 70 works of art made between 1980 and the present, with a focus on art from the past decade. You’ll hear directly from artists, architects, and designers from around the globe about their creative processes, materials, and inspiration. Five themes serve as your guide: Media from Television to the Internet, Territories & Transit, Materials & Making, Agency, and Power. You’ll look at 3-D–printed glass and fiber sculptures, performances in a factory and a museum, painted portraits—as well as those made with artificial intelligence—and interventions into television and video games. And much more, all drawn from the collection of The Museum of Modern Art. Come along as artists invite us into their studios, out into their neighborhoods, and to experiment with the materials they use. Not only will you develop a deeper understanding of how artists work today, you’ll also explore some of their many approaches to the pressing issues and questions of our time. By taking this course, you’ll gain confidence to look at contemporary art wherever you encounter it and make connections to your own life or creative practice....

Very interesting and easily consumable resources, lots of video, audio, and short text so it was very fun and accessible. They have a good diversity of artists across ethnicity, sex, and country.

Whether a fan of modern art or not, this course is really interesting and educational on how art is created, the story behind the piece, the materials, etc. Really well done by MOMA, thank you.

This course opened my mind to many different types of art, artists use materials and mediums in very unconventional ways in order to deliver compelling messages. There is a lot of politics in contemporary art, deep meaning ingrained in what at first glance seems vague and uninteresting.

The course covers a wide spectrum of technical and conceptual aspects of contemporary art. I would highly recommend it to those interested in the art of our times and the interaction of artistic expression and its poitical,societal and psychological implications.

Many thanks to MoMA for expanding my knowledge of many different types of artists and art.

A global reflection reaching levels beyond the simplicity of art itself.

The delivery of the material is easy to follow, well segmented and engaging.

Well done.

Ha sido un curso muy completo que permite abarcar diferentes temáticas en cuanto al arte contemporáneo y que sobre todo pone en auge su importancia como medio de expresión social. Es un curso muy completo y diverso que no por ello es pesado.

I audited this class during the coronavirus epidemic and it gave me a similar feel as touring a museum, with the added value of having the comments of the artists themselves. Thank you! I cannot wait to return to contemporary art museums!

A really interesting course that introduces to the world of contemporary art, starting from the works of some artists on viewed at MoMA, it illustrates their creative method and research to deal with the most current issues of our times.

This course is brilliant. I have been introduced to such a broad array of artists and ideas in a short time, in a way I would not have been able to do through my own research. I now feel equipped to go and explore even more.

El curso me permitió entender más el arte contemporáneo, porque muchas de las veces, al observarlo, me ponía en conflicto, con mi entendido, que a partir de los impresionistas y hasta el arte moderno, tengo. Gracias.

I would absolutely recommend this course to others. The videos, readings, and perhaps especially the extra resources were more than rich. I will be revisiting some of the readings and extra videos in the future!

J'ai adoré ce cours. Je connaissais mal l'Art contemporain et j'avais beaucoup d'a priori. C'est cours qui remue, qui interroge, c'est une belle aventure et une belle découverte
