This Essex for All course explores art-related resources from four different museum collections. While the course draws most heavily on resources from the University’s important collection of Latin American art [ESCALA], it also features materials from institutions farther field, such as the Colchester & Ipswich Museums, Tate Modern, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Some of the course’s key resources include artist interviews and talks; analyses of individual artworks; brief introductions to contemporary artists; virtual tours of exhibitions; and live Zoom links to upcoming lectures. Through such materials, the course seeks to make art more accessible: particularly art from the last hundred years, but also works from previous epochs.
