Excellent, informative course, with much diversity. I laughed and smiled, felt awe and inspiration, cried and felt the pain and the beautiful defiance of pieces I might have never appreciated before.
Very interesting and easily consumable resources, lots of video, audio, and short text so it was very fun and accessible. They have a good diversity of artists across ethnicity, sex, and country.

It seems the goal is to make each of the themes different throughout the weeks but some were so similar to each other that it almost did not made the students explored other subjects further or made the topics memorable.

I am an intellectual, well trained, and professional computer specialist. It is obvious that I have some cultural knowledge. Five -six years ago, after being retired, I turned back to an old and stable hobby of mine - painting, and I decided that this time I will do it the right way. I found a painter, with a lot of practice in teaching, that I felt that she might be the one. I asked to do it from the beginning: sketching and drawing, then painting with dry and wet pastels, charcoal, carving, and printing, painting with acrylic and oil paints, watercolor, etc. She decided that I am good and throughout these years I became a beginner artist, spending from 3 hours to ~ 45-50 hours per week in artistic actions. Lately, I felt that I need knowledge, mainly with the modern art, but not only. IO Begun with "What is Contemporary Art?" The perfect choice. It was the first time I met the contemporary art. It widens one's (mine) horizons. And I felt, in the end, that it was just the right thing to do. For me, it was a very warm welcome to the area that I decided to learn, search, and lecture in the last third of my life. I feel I have so much to give, and so much to learn. Thank you all.

Es un curso exelentemente interesante y necesario para los artistas, amantes y seguidores del mundo de las artes ya que despierta en los artistas la chispa para lanzarse a crear sus propios universos, y les muestra las herramientas e ideas para poder servirle mejor al mundo ecologico y humano, para costribuir a la consevacion de nuestro planeta.
Y por otro lado al expectador le permite conocer los artistas, los materiales y los procesos que usan para desarrollar sus obras, y tambien aprenden a interpretar la obra y a llegar a sus propias conclusiones.
Por ultimo debo decir que el curso para mi ha sido de mucho provecho y felicito a los organizadores

Time connects old and new. One lives from the past but we dream of the future. Mostly we dream of a better one, because we are dissatisfied with the current situation. Contemporary is therefore the connection from the past with the present and the view into the future. At the same time it is a criticism and an impulse. We should see the bad as well as the positive, connect it and bring it together anew. We learn and create with a knowledge we have created over generations, but with new challenges and spontaneous creative views.
Thank you very much for all the information, videos and texts! Stay healthy and creative!

It was a great pleasure to be in this curse "What is a Contemporary Art?
From the beginning to the end....It allowed me to explore the broad spectrum of all this talented artist....
This curse gave me the answers for most of my questions...
It let me appreciate and understand how the Contemporary Art is, and how Art still constantly evolving and offering maximum freedom to the artist to express their art in a very unique and personal way,
so the viewers can see and interpret their art with their own perspective.

This course gives you many artist references. It also gives you a little perspective of what contemporary art is. The best thing is that it can be done for free and if you like it at the end, you can pay for the certificate, which is signed by the teachers. In some comment somebody said that the word "signature" appeared in the signature of the document and that the certificate is false. But I have not had any problem with mine. I strongly recommend it!
par Tito D M•
What a fantastic course! An absolute delight for anyone who is interested in the world of Contemporary Art. The course runs in a very smooth and easily understandable series of subjects and studies a vast number of artists and their pieces. Both video and reading material have outstanding quality. I would definitely recommend this course and would encourage everyone to learn more about Contemporary Art and visit MoMA after completing the course.

I am very grateful to the Museum of Modern Art and the creators of this course. I see with what love and attention to artists, contemporary art and the audience this is all done. I got a new layer of knowledge and also structured what I received from other sources. Many works have added to me not only impressions and reflections, but also additional information about the historical, geographical and social context in other countries.
par ANA L P•
The course is very interesting for those seeking a greater learning about contemporary art, its artists and specialized bibliography. Finally I took the course I wanted for some time and for free. The quarantine brought the availability I needed to complete the course. It is certainly a good baggage to better appreciate contemporary art in Brazilian and international museums.

It opened a window of ideas for me even for my on works of art. On self improvement and self expression. It also gave me the opportunity to think about society and issues of our world today. So I concluded that contemporary art helps us understand our on present and were the world’s moving forward, based on all these analyses of ideas, concepts, places, time, etc
par Annabel C•
To any art enthusiast, looking to better understand contemporary art ideas and themes, develop an appreciation for contemporary artists, artworks as well as gain confidence in discussion on contemporary art subjects, I would recommend this course - recommended for the varied selection of art, breadth of content and succinct exploration of the topic.
"What is Contemporary Art" has no doubt demystified the art process as a solitary act which excludes those who are not affiliated with the art world. This course has shown me that contemporary art is in fact challenging but that those challenges force you to make your own connection and that connection once made is intimate and personal.
par howard t•
I liked the course. A person can take it superficially or follow links to get more information about the artists. So, it becomes an unending loop for exploration. I have gone to youtube to find more information on artists and their production. It is great to be able to explore other MOMA resourses to, like the magazine.

This course offers a wide range of subjects that contemporary art deals with and, in addition to an introduction to the subject, it gives us a perspective of the different functions of art and how they detonate certain social devices around the world. For me, contemporary art always responds to where, why and what it is for.

Le cours était très intéressant et bien organisé. Le charge de travail est bien organisé et séparé, les leçons sont assez courtes (10-15 minutes chacune) de façon qu'on peut décider en autonomie et à son rythme quand les faire, même si on ne dispose que de peu de temps dans une même journée.
Je le conseille.

I would suppose that contemporary art is a new idea and concept that is sometimes difficult to follow. For me, It means,the forms, the colors , the concepts and their relationships with technology or the modern world. I also think that nature is a major part of it because our world is based on nature.
par Jordan L P•
I am pleased to take this course because it has given me deeper insights into art itself. I never thought that I could expand my horizons on art history, art direction, and contemporary art/design, which is definitely beneficial in building my skills as a preparation for a graphic design career.

It is best app for the students of fine arts we learn how to express our works and new techniques use in today's world and we only heard about contamprory art but this app show the videos and paragraphs and tholrugh these lessons I actually know everything about contamprory and modern art.
par katerina l•
Very interesting course. It deals with contemporary artists who deal with contemporary questions such as boarders, identity, migration, politics. I totally recommend this course not only for those who are interested in modern art, but also for those who want to understand better modern art.
par Matthew S O•
Not at all what I expected, the class focuses on artists from the last few decades and their contribution to art in the form of social commentary. Rather than focusing solely on aesthetics, contemporary art attempts to critique today's world and the issues we face as humans.
par Anastasia K•
The course covers a wide spectrum of technical and conceptual aspects of contemporary art. I would highly recommend it to those interested in the art of our times and the interaction of artistic expression and its poitical,societal and psychological implications.

I wanted an introduction to contemporary art and was very happy with this six module course. There were over 70 works of art across a variety of mediums in the course and I feel that I now have a much better appreciation for modern art than I did before.
