At least 5 works should be chosen. You will need to
present the art (via narrated PowerPoint, narrated Prezi, or video), MAKE SURE IT IS FULLY NARRATED AND ON AUTO PLAY so the viewer doesn’t have to click on every slide. One of the easiest ways to do this is to create your PowerPoint with the embedded narration and all transitions and then export it as a video.
tell us about the art (artist, when it was created, define the type of art, gives us some context about how it was created)
explain how/why it represents you
identify a social angle for each work AND do a thorough contextual analysisrace and ethnicity
gender and sexuality
class and highbrow/lowbrow
colonialism, postcolonialism, place and regionalism
nature (environment, ecology) and culture
memory, history, generational identity
body and mind
You can use ANY type of art covered in our class, including the performing arts (play, dance, music) that are in Module 3. The WHY it represents you is the most important part of the project. Each student is also required to find something in common with another student based upon self-portraits and to identify that “something in common” in a discussion comment of at least 50 words.The Self-Portrait is worth up to 40 points. The “something in common” comment is worth up to 5 points for a total of 45 points for this assignment.
