DescriptionIn Dr. Katie Larson's ARTH 4362 "Modern European Art" course, Dr. Victoria Pass, professor of art history in the Art History, Theory, and Criticism Department at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), will discuss her recent research on primitivism in fashion and design. She will introduce how major European designers in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries appropriated images and forms from Africa and Oceania to create new visual languages that often referenced ideas of fantasy and the other. Grounded in racist ideologies that supported the colonial imagination, Dr. Pass will consider how we might reevaluate such references through a broader global perspective.
