Spring 2023 - Professor Medvedev is a gem. She's such a kind soul with a sense of humor. She definitely knows her Modern Eastern European Art. From someone that has VERY little modern art exposure and absolutely zero knowledge of Eastern Europe, I can say that I've learned a lot from this class. Prof. Medvy (she is unaware of her nickname that I chose for her) has excellent slides of work that is engaging and fit the topics that are discussed (which is nice, most often Art History Professors use a lot of fillers). She is big on participation, so make sure you read the material ahead of time. If you do make an error in your in-class analysis or even the discussion, do not fret nor fear...she will help you out and NOT make you feel inadequate. She will try to understand your viewpoint and often times she will say, "You know what...I can see why you would say that." This of course is said with her contagious smile. You won't regret taking her class!
