Course Description 
In this course, conceptual artist Kathryn Andrews examines the 20th-century phenomenon of the rise of the artist as both cult figure and branded commodity, while exploring how recognition impacts the very act of looking. Systematically citing a history of artists who have resisted commodification, Andrews argues for creative strategies that elude the market’s definitions, in pursuit of more complex ways of seeing.

No prior knowledge of art is necessary.
