This reality is filtered, constructed, and oftentimes imagined. This course will look at the question of reality and illusion in visual culture, spanning the development of illusionistic painting; the hyper-realistic art of the Netherlands in the seventeenth century; twentieth-century artists like Claes Oldenburg and Ron Mueck, who use scale to challenge realism; and the rise of reality television. Field Trip: one full-day to the Art Institute of Chicago. Additional course fee: $12.00. Course Types: Aesthetic&Philosophical-B
