COURSE CONTENT AND STRUCTURE

This course will look at the vibrant period in Art History known collectively as Modernism. Focusing on Irish Women Artists who were pioneers of the new avant-garde styles, and influential in the development of what is termed ‘Modern’. Many of these women have been, until recently, shamefully neglected art historically. These informal but visually stimulating lectures will seek to highlight their significant contribution to Modernism. By asking students to first ask what is meant by the term ‘Modern’ the lectures will then access the work of key artists who shaped Modernism in Ireland and abroad. Themes associated with movements such as Expressionism, Cubism, Fauvism, Surrealism and Abstract Expressionist shall be explored and how the legacy of these brave, innovative and independent women have continued to influence contemporary women artists, shall be addressed.

Please note: Adjustments may need to be made to the following during course delivery.
