Pretend you are a curator for a museum. Your job to set up an exhibit of five artworks that speak to you, created by five different artists, and share it with the class.
Reflect on all the art we’ve learned about this session. Select five of your favorite works of art from the session to include in your exhibition. You can also organize your collection by theme if preferred. Here are a few examples:
- Same style
- Same time period
- Same or similar subject matter
- Same unusual medium or unique artistic technique
- Pieces that speak to you for some reason: aesthetic, political, or social statement.
- A curatorial statement. This is a brief introduction to your exhibit, telling viewers what your exhibit is about. You should answer some or all of these questions:
- Why did you select these particular five pieces?
- What connections did you make between these pieces? How do you hope viewers will make these connections?
- An image of each of your five artworks. Each image must be cited following APA or Chicago Manual of Style format.
- A description of each piece. Include
- the title,
- the name of the artist,
- media, dimensions, and the year it was created.
- a short paragraph (3-4 sentences) that makes connections between the work and its historical context and tells the viewer what it means to you, and why you selected it.
You can also include something we wouldn’t know about the work of art from looking quickly.
3. For each of your artworks, please write a short paragraph (3-4 sentences) that tells the viewer what the piece means to you and why you selected it. You can also include something a viewer wouldn’t know about the work of art from looking quickly.
