Art Assignment 72

I’m working on a writing question and need an explanation to help me learn.

you will be writing a 5 page paper

Updates, expands, or complicates one of Lazzari and Schlesier’s themes presented in the textbook (Food & Shelter; Reproduction & Sexuality; Deities & Places of Worship; Morality & Immortality; Power, Politics, & Glory; Social Protest / Affirmation;

  1. Mind & Body; Race, Gender, Clan, & Class; Nature, Knowledge, & Technology; Entertainment & Visual Culture; Art in Your Life)

In your final project, you must:

  1. IDENTIFY the artists, artwork titles, dates, countries/cultures of origin, art historical movements (if applicable), and medium or locations.
  2. ANALYZE the formal and stylistic elements of your chosen artworks (remember that formal analysis does not = just observation or description; analysis = finding meaning).
  1. INTERPRET any iconography, symbolism, motifs/tropes, or other significant/meaningful visual elements within your selected artworks.
  2. CONTEXTUALIZE the artworks within their larger historical and cultural moments (ie: what was happening in society and history at the time of its creation; how do these artworks and artists reflect and/or speak back to these events or issues?).
  3. DEVELOP AN ARGUMENT that either updates on of the themes proposed by Lazzari and Schlesier, or that creates a new theme by finding at least 2 new artworks and conducting formal analysis and historical/cultural interpretation. Show your reader how your selected artworks are speaking to and/or against your theme in a way that puts different images, time periods, and cultures into conversation with each other. You can be interpretative and have a POV, but your arguments should be supported by specific facts and evidence grounded in formal analysis and historical/cultural research.
