An Introduction to Modern and Contemporary Art Certificate 

Discover the Modern and Contemporary Art, course starting in October. The course offers an introduction to the major art movements in this period illustrating how radical ideas and intentions became fashionable and influential to succeeding generations of artists. Participants on the course will learn about the formal innovations in the use of materials, the importance of ideas, new exhibition strategies and the impact of political and social change on the evolution of art.

Designed as a course in three terms, the programme offers a comprehensive, illustrated survey of Modern and Contemporary art in the late 19th century until the present day.
