The cinema and the visual arts share numerous attributes, including aesthetic considerations of perspective, light, color, and composition. Beyond such matters of form, they are also concerned with techniques, movements, and ideas. Along these lines, there is one rather substantial way in which the two creative forms function similarly: they are both significantly influenced—aesthetically, as well as thematically—by major developments in such areas as politics, cultural criticism, and technology.

This course looks at comparable and significant moments in the creation and consideration of art and cinema. Gallery visits and film clips will enhance our discussion of photography, formalism, and documentary as represented in the Museum’s collection and world cinema. Join us to explore some of the parallels between the making and study of art and film, and to gain a greater understanding of some of the ways in which we approach creative works.
