Good morning Alejandra Oseguera! When I was reading your response to this week’s discussion, I noticed you made some important points that I agreed with. We both agree on the belief that architecture is and should be considered art. You mentioned in your response, that there are buildings globally that hold
However, the “live” is still typically absent. As the audience for this kind of art, we are always complicit in its meaning. This ringing especially true to any sort of “live” performance. With artworks such as this, one has to allow for themselves to be changed in response to the stimuli. O’Grady pushed the limits when it came to identity in her pieces, she went against the norm and decided to be different. Others chose to intervene into public spaces such as the street, or in this case a parade, to instigate a conversation between the viewer and performer - as one, they work together to allow for later viewers to understand the motif and the
Edgar Degas’ Little Dancer Aged Fourteen is a symbol for all little girls with dreams bigger than themselves. The Little Dancer is a statue of a young girl made from all natural materials, created by the artist Edgar Degas. The Little Dancer has a small head with small features; Degas was not trying to emphasize her face, but her minute features display an expression of hope, almost jovial in a way. The air of her expression conveys the quiet discipline of a dancer and therefore her passion and love for ballet. The legs of the dancer are long compared to her torso, turned out, as a dancers always are. This turnout becomes natural after working strenuously every single day, trying to perfect the dancer’s art; standing parallel feels abnormal.

Overcoming Obstacles as One: A Close Look At Daniel Canogar’s Video Instillation Asalto Toronto Daniel Canogar’s video instillation, Asalto Toronto, consists of a projection of pedestrians crawling up and down, approximately, four pillars outside of Union Station at 65 Front Street West. This piece symbolically demonstrates the overcoming of life’s obstacles, while engaging spectators as participants (Nuit Blanche Toronto, 2016). Furthermore, this installation is a form of ethnic dance that demonstrates universality in the struggles individuals face within a community.
Through their effectual and extensive use of distinctly visual elements and techniques, John Misto’s play ‘The Shoe-Horn Sonata’ and the song ‘I was only 19’ by Redgum, offer a variety of perceptions of the world. Distinctively visual elements and techniques assist us to develop an awareness of languages in other texts and allows us to understand how our perceptions of and relationships with others and the world are shaped through written, spoken and visual language. The play ‘The Shoe-Horn sonata follows the experience of two former women POW, describing their experiences, and trying to reconcile their differences. This play challenges the reader to look past the pain of these characters, at the wider social and political context, which allowed
The article “Book Tackles Old Debate: Role of Art in Schools” by Robin Pogrebin explains the influence of art and the conclusion of two researchers, Ellen Winner and Lois Hetland. “Students who study the arts seriously are taught to see better, to envision, to persist, to be playful and learn from mistakes, to make critical judgements and justify such judgements,” conclude both researchers.
Distinctively visual representations allow the audience to envisage different purposes crafting emotions which stay with us forever. Graphic depiction is a fundamental characteristic within distinctively visual, thus the audience is able to be exposed to the intense illustrations exemplified by composers. Spudvilla’s portrayal of “Woolvs in the sitee” demonstrates the
I have had a passion for art since childhood. Over the past three years i have sought to use this enthusiasm to good effect. I focused on discovering new talent and learning about the process of creation and also the curating of exhibitions. This lead to me creating a pop up exhibition for students at Central Saint Martins in a vacant space on the Portland estate in
Teresa Hernandez Professor Brown Art History 141 26 May 2015 UCLA Fowler Museum Research Project The title of the exhibition is called “Intersection: World Arts, Local Lives.” This exhibition opened on September 30, 2006. Some of the pieces displayed on this exhibition were not new, since Professor Brown had already gone over them. The exhibition contained a divination board, vessels, male and female figures, masks, headdresses, staffs, textiles, among others things. The art pieces were from different parts of the world. The exhibition is divided into four different sections, each with its own theme. The different themes were Art and Action, Art and Knowledge, Art and Power, and Art and Transformation. The art found in the museum seemed like it didn’t have any crack, dents, or breaks on them. Professor Brown showed the class some pictures of art pieces that had some broken
DESCRIPTION OF THE GALLERY The first thing that a visitor notices upon visiting the Sensing Chicago gallery is the tactile experience. Everything begs to be touched. The exhibits are oriented low to the ground so as to be accessible to the eight- to nine-year-old target audience, and there are no guardrails of any kind to inhibit accessibility. The labels, the floor, and the exhibits themselves are painted in bold, exciting colors and the walls are covered with pictures of smiling children and iconic sights of Chicago. It is hard to imagine the space not appealing to the sensibilities of a young child.
This photograph encapsulates the theme 'coming of age' through the identification of it's visual techniques. The use of contrast, light and darkness give an eerie and mysterious atmosphere revolving around the stages of youth. The main focus is the lady, her gaze and position is towards the playground as she is in deep thought. The expression in her eyes are full of wonder and appears as if she's asking herself questions. Maybe about her past, current time or her future. Her stance looks relaxed and her emotion is calm, like she is reflecting. You look at the child and compare the differences between both subjects; their clothes, appearance and personalities. You see the change. The graffiti on playground is like a symbol of rebelliousness,

Marina Abramović’s “The Artist is Present” challenging Performance and Cultural Politics Marina Ambramović’s concept of performance art interrogates the traditional forms and practices of what most people would consider to be the “norm”, that derive from personal preferences generated from different aspects of society. Abramović is known for her durational performance work that tests the endurance and limitations of her own body and mind. Performance art may be understood as a practice where the body of the artist is central or the medium itself involving objected based art materials such as paint and canvas. Abramović challenges this traditional sense, and introduces new concepts of “pushing the body to its limits” and cutting down the distance between artist and audience by making her own the body the medium. In this paper, I will be critiquing Ambramović’s use of performance art to the ways she provokes cultural politics by ultimately aiming to silence the question “what is art”. Upon watching her documentary “The Artist is Present”, I have found that in her performances she presents the public with challenges, shock, and emotions that can be understood as a controversial act; however the effect her performances have on people can differ based on the perspective of which performance art is viewed.
