Sec 011 CRN 39284 Hernández-Durán MW 2:00-3:15 CTRART 1019
Offered with ARTH 529.002. This course concentrates more closely on colonial art production in New Spain during the first two centuries of the Ibero-
American colonial period, i.e., 1521– 1700, during which time the Spanish throne was occupied by the Austrian Hapsburg dynasty. We will begin by
examining issues revolving around urban planning and architectural construction in Mexico City following the conquest. We will continue by studying
16th-century manuscript and map production, early missionary culture (i.e., mendicant order iconographies, architecture, murals, and altarpieces), the
foundation of the viceregal system, the coeval establishment of the trans-Pacific trade, and the gradual emergence of a creole social class and the caste
structure that characterizes Novohispanic society throughout the 17th century and into the 18th. Painting and print production will constitute the main

assign-ments, and a comprehensive final exam.

Sec 002 CRN 39289 Buick TR 3:30-4:45 CTRART 1019
Offered with ARTH 572.001. This survey will introduce major themes in the art and culture of what became the United States between 1670 and 1875.
We will examine painting, sculpture, photography, some craft and architecture, with two purposes in mind: first, to trace the rise and development of
systems for art making and dissemination; and second, to understand the deep cultural concerns that found expression through art. We will explore the
formation and expansion of private collections, academies, art unions, museums, artist societies, and government patronage of the arts. We will chart the
influence of and relationship to art movements and institutions not only in Europe, but within the French and Spanish colonies as well and how these
relationships were perceived to facilitate or impede the development of a uniquely “American” art. Concurrently, we will consider how various issues
found expression and were debated, resolved, or blown apart in the art: immigration (English and Irish; Colonial and post-Revolutionary), regional and
ethnic differences, Native Americans, westward expansion, slavery, the rise of abolitionist societies, evolutionary theories, Transcendentalism, gender,
race, and the ever elusive (and fictive) “National Character.”

Offered with ARTH 587.001. XL with MUS/ DANC/ THEA/ MA 487/ 587. Arts-in-Medicine I is the first in a series of service-learning courses exploring
connections between creative experience and the healing process and how the two have come together in the emerging field of Arts-in-Medicine. The
course is designed for healthcare professionals, community members, educators, musicians, dancers, actors, artists, and students from a variety of
disciplines who are interested in exploring the transformative power of the creative process as it relates to their own physical and mental health as well
as to the health of others. Topic areas include aspects of: communication/ conflict resolution; ethics/ professionalism; energy awareness; physiology/ pain;
social issues around health and illness, healthcare systems, death, and dying; expressive art therapies. Learning formats include presentations by guest
artists and scientists, creative reflection and art-making, service-learning opportunities, and independent research projects. Course participants will interact
with the clinicalprogram (currently based in UNM Hospitals, Psychiatric Center, Cancer Research and Treatment Center), in which artists-in-medicine aim to
facilitate healing in its broadest sense for patients, their families, and medical professionals by offering a renewed sense of possibility via the creative
encounter. While relieving pain and stress the artists also hope to expand awareness and stimulate dialog in the community regarding the nature of health
and healthcare, illness, death and dying. Bridging academia and community, art and medicine, the program includes community artists, UNM College of Fine
Arts, College of Nursing, and School of Medicine faculty and students, UNM Hospitals and community healthcare professionals, patients, and volunteers.

Contemporary T heories of Color
Sec 006 CRN 39297 Lumpkin T 2:00-4:45 CTRART 1018
This seminar provides an in-depth look at contemporary uses and theories of color set against the backdrop of the history of philosophical discourse on
color since antiquity. Discourse on color all but disappeared in the 1960s, despite the fact that traditional conceptualizations of color had been central to
discussions of the ethical aspects of art in the West since the mid-16th
century. Not until the late 1990s was color restored to art discourse. This course
examines the ways in which important late 20th
-century artists often adhered to conventional allegories of color, while 21st
-century artists are
reallegorizing color in unconventional ways. Class presentations focus on close analysis of select works of art. Reading assignments accompany each
class. Students are expected to participate in all class discussions, lead one class discussion, and produce one paper or art project.

ART H 580 Seminar: Colonial Art Historiography
Sec 001 CRN 37044 Hernández-Durán W 10:00-12:45 CTRART 1018
This graduate seminar, ideal for any students of Latin American art history but especially students interested in the colonial period, will tackle the problem
of the lack of a significant historiography of Ibero-American colonial art history. Students in the class will review the few extant publications dealing with
the subject and then, through close discussion of readings and problems, they will produce a series of historiographic essays that will be edited and
submitted in anthology form for possible publication. As such, the seminar will be approached more as a workshop with the aim of generating a
comprehensive publishable review of primary historiographic sources. Seminar requirements will include: Spanish reading knowledge, substantial
student directed discussions of readings, and two or three essays per student (depending on the number of students enrolled). Restriction: Permission of
ART H 581 Seminar: Picturing Empire: Representing
Colonial Subjects in the 18th Century
Sec 002 CRN 39300 Buick T 11:00-1:45 CTRART 1018
This seminar will explore the production, circulation, and function of portraiture within a larger system of representational strategies, such as map making
and landscape; extraction (of raw materials that were then transformed into commodities; of those complicated and corrupting elements in the
construction of English “purity”) and consumption (the remaking of Englishness as objects that can be purchased and disseminated); slavery and the
slave trade and abolitionism; and natural history (both flora and fauna—i.e. animals and “Indians”), during Britain’s 18th
century. In the creation of a visual
culture of colonialism, we will examine how systems of knowledge worked in conjunction to construct and reaffirm a mythic and fictional idea of English
"purity." We will challenge the very idea of “hybridity” and in its stead labor to theorize the mechanism of “accommodation” to local traditions and realities
in order to achieve “incorporation”/ embodiment. As Jennifer DeVere Brody writes, “the very concept of hybridity presupposes pure forms that can be
mixed, and the reproduction of purity requires the erasure of hybridity.” We will look at English visual culture and the visual culture of its colonies in the
West Indies, North America, and India, but not as individual and separate phenomena, rather as relational instruments of power that helped to create and
sustain Empire as a moral and natural entity. Required texts: Beth Fowkes Tobin, Picturing Imperial Power: Colonial Subjects in 18th
