From Andy Warhol's iconic appropriation of the Campbell's soup can, now worth over a million pounds, to Kanye West's 'My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy' album cover featuring a painting by American artist George Condo, this 1h class will explore how art, once a reflection of the world around it, has now infiltrated and become a part of it. We will start by looking at art produced during the 1960s that laid the groundwork for contemporary art. No longer perceived as something reserved for quiet museums, art has since broken the boundaries that once enclosed it. Artists have broadened their scope using innovative mediums like light installation and by creating huge in-situ works with the aim of being accessible for all; others through successful collaborations have become recognisable brands in their own right like Takashi Murakami who created a line for Louis Vuitton. The particular artists we will focus on are Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, James Turrell, George Condo and Takashi Murakami, but others will also be mentioned.

- What defines art?

- Does art have to be unique and how crucial is the artist's hand in the process of making an artwork?

- Can a painting printed on a bag be art or is the realm of commodity something totally different?

- Do you need to be a millionaire to own a piece by a leading contemporary artist?
