THE VISUAL ARTS & THE OPPOSITES
Taught by Marcia Rackow
Looking at the art of the world in New York museums and galleries—from the tomb sculptures of ancient China to the latest work in Chelsea—we study how beauty in all art is a oneness of opposites. The classes are based on Eli Siegel’s lectures and essays, including “Art As Flexibility,” “Art As Energy,” “The Drama of Hardness and Softness in Painting.” Once each semester there is a joint Art and Anthropology class in which primitive art is studied.
The Fall semester of classes is now in session. For information about auditing classes, call the Registrar at 212.777.4490.
