Project MUSE – Art Subjects: Making Artists in the American University (review)

This study places that degree in its proper historical framework and ideological context. Arguing that where artists are trained makes a difference in the forms and meanings they produce, he shows how the university, with its disciplined organization of knowledge and demand for language, played a critical role in the production of modernism in the visual arts.


Now it is shaping what we call postmodernism – like postmodernist art, the graduate university stresses theory and research over manual skills and traditional techniques of representation.

Nearly every artist under the age of fifty in the United States today has a Master of Fine Arts degree. Howard Singermans thoughtful study is the first to place that degree in its proper historical framework and ideological context.

More than just education history, howars, this book relates the evolution of art itself to changes in pedagogy and theory both educational and cultural.
