HAA 276G - Deception





Carrie Lambert-Beatty

Thursdays, 3:00 pm - 5:45 pm

This course will treat questions of trickery, deceit, and duplicity as characteristics of art, and attempt to theorize the aesthetics of deception. The approach will be through contemporary art, where artists have reinvented the old association between art and illusion, but students of any period or culture will be able to pursue their interests as the class treats the long history, and complicated theory, of art's association with trickery.


Primarily for graduate students.
