Instructions:
Today, artists work in a globally influenced and culturally diverse world, and the artworks they produce are created through advancing technologies and evolving studio practices. Much like a mirror, contemporary art has the ability to reflect a unique perspective within a particular point in time, and it is important to look at art through this lens because it can embody a variety of perspectives on identity, values, and beliefs.
The objective of this assignment is to analyze the major question in the course which is,
In what ways do contemporary artists reflect our culture and society?
TERM PROJECT | ESSAY INSTRUCTIONS: For your Term Project | Essay you will identify a current cultural or societal theme and then select 5 contemporary artists that, in your opinion, reflect that theme within their artworks. You should include 4 artists from the Art21 Artist Database (Links to an external site.) and 1 that you have found through outside research. Once you have selected your artists you will write a curatorial essay. The required word count for the essay is 2,000 – 2,500 words. This assignment has a pre-writing outline below and the opportunity for drafts, edits, and a final revision. The essay is just one component of the Term Project, combined the essay and powerpoint are worth 500 points – which is 50% of your course grade.
How does one create a successful Term Project you ask? Good research is key! It is important to include high-quality researched information in your Term Project, so you should collect a minimum of 6 scholarly sources, these sources should be from journals found through FSU library e.g. J Stor, EBSCOhost, etc. and art publications like Art Forum, Art in America, Hyperallergic, Leonardo, and BOMB Magazine, etc. You may also include more sources as supplemental research – but this is not required. Again, you may include more than 6 sources but points will be deducted for less than 6 scholarly sources total. **IMPORTANT: Art21 is not considered a “scholarly source” – so it can not be included within your Term Project sources.**
