HART 1605A Prehispanic Art

This course will provide a panorama of the principal artistic traditions and styles that developed across South America. It will address a broad range of media: from rock art, sculptures and buildings in the landscape to the carvings and friezes in stone and adobe set in architecture on the one hand, to bodily modification and painting, music and dance as well as objects fashioned from clay, stone, wood, shell and metals, on the other hand. The course seeks to provide a regional, spatial, temporal and ecological framework and offer tools for contextual analyses, as well as lay out principal current debates, with an emphasis on the material outputs of complex societies of the Andes. A practical with ceramic pieces from the university study collection is envisaged.
