We will concentrate on the most recent processes brought to the forefront by globalization such as international Biennale especially those taking place in Asia, proliferation of the contemporary art museums, and influence of globalization on the art market.

In so doing, the methodologies of art history will be employed. Prerequisites: ARTH 171 or ARTH 172 or ARTH 173. Offered not on a regular basis, every two years.
