VISA 2B07 Final Exam Review

  1. 1. Final Exam Basics WEDNESDAY APRIL 18th 6:30-9:30pmRoom 190/230 (based on last name)Is cumulative, but mostly just for theessay. Otherwise concentrate on the content covered since the midterm
  2. 2. Exam breakdown• 50%=Essay: choose between 2 topics - you should be writing for at least an hour on this, fill the exam booklet - you DO NOT find out the topics beforehand - you should be referencing material learned since the beginning of the course - these are NOT slide comparison questions
  3. 3. Exam breakdown• Other 50%=smaller questions, all on content covered SINCE THE MIDTERM – 20 multiple choice questions, worth 1 pt. each – 10 fill-in-the-blank questions, worth 1 pt. each – 10 slide IDs, worth 2 pts. Each • These are only on images seen since the midterm • Know artist name, title of work, date (5 year range before/after), and movement it was part of – Each of these small things is worth 0.5 pt each
  4. 4. Important things to note• Spelling counts, especially in the last name of the artists and the titles of the works• Don’t forget about the sound art lecture! And that we studied sound poems like Karawane, and Cage’s 4’33’’; also know terms from the sound art lecture, like plunderphonics
  5. 5. Essay things to think about• BIG PICTURE seems to be key; have you paid attention since the beginning of the course? Can you synthesize across all the weeks? Relate different artists, artworks and movements across the history of Modern art?
  6. 6. • When you talk about a work in your essay, make sure you mention: – What movement is it part of? What is that movement about (one sentence?) – How does this work EXEMPLIFY the movement that it is a part of? How does it fit into its particular movement? What are the similarities between movements? The differences?
  7. 7. • When you’re discussing the artworks and the movements they’re a part of, make sure you connect them to: – Historical context (what’s going on in history at the time?) – Cultural context (what are some of the other cultural movements (ie. literary) going on at the same time?) – Social context (what is society at the time like? What is it being influenced by?) – Political context (is there a war going on? How has that affected the movements?)
  8. 8. Examples of potential essay questions• Drawing on 4 distinct art movements, discuss authorship and the role of the avant-garde• Drawing on 3-4 distinct art movements, discuss the ways in which women have intervened in the history of modern art
  9. 9. So…in order to know the BIGGER PICTURE, let’sreview what we know from the beginning…
