Official academic sources are best.

Three pages, double-spaced, twelve point type (Times or equivalent font).
For this paper you are to consider what the change in context of a work’s production and display does to an otherwise simplified form. Because this is one of the central questions about the continuing viability of the forms of painting we call “Modernist,” and because we already discussed some alternative contexts for the production and display of Modernist forms of painting in our second session, you are to stick within the framework of that.
You are to choose one of three subject areas for this project:
Latin American modernist painters from the 1950s and 1960s, African American modernist painters from the late 1960s and early 1970s, and Korean modernist painters (from the Dansaekhwa movement) from the 1960s and 1970s.
Ideally, I would like to see an analysis of how you think the meaning of a relatively simplified form shifts depending on where it is being shown and what the political and intellectual conditions of that place and time allowed. You may choose as many artists to discuss as possible, but a good line of approach would be to take only another one and look at any secondary material you can find written on them/him/her.
Also, just as a note: the internet is not your friend. Official academic sources are best.

What is the goal of the exhibit? c.

Museum Visit
1. Purpose
By completing this assignment, you will question and your past interactions with Native American artistic and cultural products. You will also develop a critical understanding of how settler institutions, particularly museums and galleries, exhibit, promote, and collect Native American art. This will allow to become more mindful of the curatorial practices and of ethnic/racial narratives in cultural spaces, a knowledge that you can extrapolate to the study of other artistic traditions.
2. Task
Visit a cultural institution that has a show about Native American art and write a report about your experience in the museum/gallery.
The report must include the sections and address the questions indicated below:
1. Facts
a. What is the name and theme of this exhibit?
b. What is the goal of the exhibit?
c. Is this show a natural fit for this museum/gallery? How come?
d. Does this museum exhibit Native American art often?
e. Who curated the show? What is their ethnicity, educational training, and position?
f. Is this show a solo, group, generational, collection-based, loan-based, or survey exhibition?
2. Experience
a. How is the show structured? What was the show’s introduction, body, and conclusion? How would you describe the flow of the show?
b. Describe the physical experience of walking through the galleries. How did it feel to encounter the artwork on the walls, floors, etc.? Were there any placements or displays that impacted you? (If you have the instructor’s authorization to complete the visit virtually, describe the visual experience of scrolling, zooming in, and interacting with the show’s materials).
c. How did the visitors around you appear? How would you describe them?
d. What was your favorite area of the show and why? Which area did you dislike the most?
e. Did you find the argument that the exhibit makes convincing? How come?
3. Reflection
a. What key words or issues discussed in class appeared in the show? Why are these important for this exhibit?
b. How does this show include Indigenous perspectives?
c. What is the strongest aspect of the show? What is a criticism that you have of the show? How come?
d. How could this show have a stronger message and impact?
3. Criteria for Success
This assignment is worth 10% of your final grade for the class.
To obtain a high score in this assignment, the report must:
§ Include the sections described above.
§ Include well-developed answers to every question posed above. The answers should be cohesive paragraphs, rather than as bullet points. For the “Facts”, write one paragraph addressing all the questions listed for that section. There is no need to include the questions on your report, dividing your report by section is preferred.
§ Have a critical and reflective tone.
§ In the “Experience” section feel free to base your response on your personal experiences. Feel free to be subjective.
§ In the “Reflection” section introduce an objective analysis of the show. Make use of the readings and lectures for this analysis.
§ Be 2 pages long.
§ B written using Times New Roman or Arial, font 12, and double spacing.
§ Have numbered pages and include student’s name.
§ Be submitted via Canvas.

An approximate guideline for how many slides to include in the body of the presentation is fifteen (15).

This assignment will require students to trace the development of Greek pottery, by examining the various techniques and qualities of naturalism that evolved over the course of approximately four centuries, from the Geometric period through Classical. Students will create a PowerPoint lecture that selects four (4) objects to analyze selected from an online collection in a reputable art institution (e.g., Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC; British Museum in London, Art Institute of Chicago, Musee du Lourvre in Paris, etc).
Choose one object from each of the following periods and/or techniques: Greek Geometric period; Greek Orientalizing period; Greek black-figure technique (Archaic period); and Greek red-figure technique (Archaic or Classical period). Pay close attention to the stylistic features of each object and integrate your analysis with comparisons to object(s) we have studied on-line and/or that are discussed in the textbook. When selecting objects to compare, try to find objects that share more characteristics than not.
The aim of this assignment is for students to develop an eye for style and locate the subtle differences that distinguish one technique or tendency from another. As such, organize the PowerPoint lecture in a logical, analytical fashion (i.e., chronologically) that includes a slide addressing context for each period. Conclude the paper with a slide that includes remarks about the significance of the objects — that is, how they fit into a larger art historical framework.
An approximate guideline for how many slides to include in the body of the presentation is fifteen (15). This includes slides that establish context and/or discuss technique, slides with pictures of the objects and bulleted analysis, comparison slides, and a slide that contains concluding remarks. At the end of the PowerPoint, be sure to include an “Image Index” that contains information about each object and/or comparison. Examples of an Image Index are included at the end of each PowerPoint that has been uploaded into the Canvas units.

If you wrote 4 pages, the illustration would be copy-and-pasted onto page 5.

Instructions: Choose a painting and write a 3-5 page essay analyzing it. The painting must be by an artist listed on page 2. A color illustration of the painting must accompany the paper. The image must be downloaded from ARTstor an RSU library-image database.* Your critique must conform to the following standards: 12 pt. font using times new roman script and one inch margins, footers, and headers. The essay must be double-spaced even at paragraph breaks. Indent all paragraphs. Title the paper using the artist’s name and painting’s title, for example: Vincent van Gogh’s Starry Night.
Four things are to be analyzed about the painting that were discussed in Gateways to Art and the PowerPoint lectures. They are: 1. The painting’s subject matter or narrative content [pg. 35-37 print and e-book]), which is often found in the title of the work (also include the artist’s name, date it was painted, etc.); 2. The painting’s form, and how its visual elements are structured, e.g., line, color, shape, value, chiaroscuro, space, etc. (information culled, and only culled, from chapters 1.1-1.10 from Gateways to Art); 3. The significance of the artwork’s medium (again, information culled from chapters 2.1 and 2.2). 4. An interpretation of the painting’s significance and how it affected you personally. The essay is not a book report about a painter; the assignment must focus on the painting itself. Structure your essay according to the items listed above, but do not enumerate, bullet-point, or subtitle these items in the paper. Use only paragraphs to demarcate ideas and themes. The essay must be double-spaced throughout and must include a color illustration of the painting. Always capitalize and italicize the title of the painting in the essay. Your name must be on the essay. Do not include a cover page. Paginate your essay starting with page 1. Do not start your essay halfway down page 1. Use only Gateways to Art. Do not use any other sources of information. General information, e.g., the painting’s date, medium, style, etc. can be found online and cited from in the paper. The critique is submitted as a Word document (or PDF) along with the image. When searching for an illustration first go to ARTstor. If it is not found at ARTstor then search online.* Credit the source of the illustration, including ARTstor. Include the title and credited source of the illustration alongside the image. Do NOT embed the image within the 3-5 pages of text. The color illustration constitutes a separate page in addition to the 3-5 pages of text. For example, were you to write only 3 pages, then the illustration would be copy-and-pasted onto page 4. If you wrote 4 pages, the illustration would be copy-and-pasted onto page 5. Finally, 3 pages of text means 3 full/complete written pages. Anything short of 3 full pages, even if it’s a sentence, will be penalized. Failure to comply with these instructions results in a lower grade. The essay is submitted as an electronic Word document (or PDF) to the course website.

For example, don’t just say there’s a house in a field.

You are required to view a contemporary, original piece of art in your area and compare/contrast it to an ancient work from your text, after analyzing both pieces. For example, if you choose a portrait of a leader, find one in your text; if you choose a building, like a church, find one in your text to compare.
Note: If a museum is not available, try your public library, local community college, or an art gallery for sculptures, parks for statues, or government buildings for paintings. Also, don’t forget that architecture is an art form. Look around for a church or an interesting building. Art is everywhere!
Your paper should address the following:
Identification: Provide Identifying details for each work (10 points = 5 points for each work):
Artist: Who was the artist?
Title of the work: What is the title of the work?
Date: When was the work created?
Media: How/with what was the work created?
Location: Where is the work from your area displayed? For the work from your text, please also include the page number.
Description: What does each work look like? (100 points = 50 points for each work):
Describe the subject matter of each work, in detail. Imagine you are describing the work to a blind person; use that level of detail. For example, don’t just say there’s a house in a field.
Identify and discuss five formal elements of art (Choose from line, shape, color, texture, space, contrast, scale, balance, and emphasis) in detail, for each work. For instance, don’t just tell me there were lines in the work, tell me what kind (straight, curved, horizontal, diagonal, thick, thin, implied, etc.) and tell me how they affect the composition (lines dominate the left half of the work, etc.).
Compare and Contrast the two (2) works (70 points):
Compare and contrast the works (Do not compare the terms from part 2), and answer these questions in your analysis: How are the works similar and how are they different? Is the message or function the same? Is the intended audience different? Do they look alike or not? Has the meaning changed over time?
Also discuss such things as symbolism and purpose (aesthetic, social commentary, propaganda, etc.) and evaluate the effectiveness of the works.
