Prior to beginning work on this discussion forum, read Chapters 10 and 11 of the textbook. Select a contemporary work of art or architecture from the textbook, a website listed on the ART101 Museum and Images Website download document, one of the assigned virtual reality videos, or visit your local museum.
Your work of art should be one that you have not already examined elsewhere in this class, with the exception of the Week 3 assignment.
Provide a brief analysis of the work of art using the art history specific vocabulary and methods for approaching art you have learned over the past five weeks. Consider the media (materials), methods, subjects of the work of art, and the reflections of the region and Contemporary Art movement. You may want to revisit the Writing Center’s Summary vs. Analysis (Links to an external site.). In your analysis, answer the following questions:
How do the political, philosophical, religious, and social contexts impact the art of today?
How does Contemporary Art differ from other movements which you studied earlier in this course?
Reflect upon how your interpretation of art has changed since you examined the A Fall with the Rebel Angels in the Post Your Introduction discussion in Week 1, and address the following:
What differences are there between the ways you interpreted that work of art in Week 1 to your interpretation now?
How will these changes impact the way you view art moving forward?
Your initial post must be at least 200 words in length.
