Art movement

  1. 1. Art Movement Homework Project INSTRUCTIONS. READ ME FIRST On the next slide, there are 9 tasks. In the first week, you must complete the task in the middle box. You then have until your homework deadline to choose two more tasks which create a straight line passing through the middle box. Think carefully about the presentation. Include plenty of images to illustrate your research and don’t forget to write the titles and dates of each work you include.
  2. 2. Society: Critics’ & Public Opinion Quite often the name of an Art Movement derives from an Art critic and is meant as an insult. Is this the case for your Art Movement? Explain. If this is not the case then present the reasons behind the choice of the name chosen by the artists involved. The work produced by many Art Movements frequently shocked the Art establishment or the general public. Can you find any evidence regarding how the work of your particular movement was received by society? Include images to support your answers. In-depth artist study. (Make sure you include images) Choose one artist and explore their life and work. Research these three areas: Context (the facts): when and where your artist was born and/or studied. Do any life events help us to understand the work they created? Intentions: What was your artist trying to achieve? Their aims may change over the course of their life but will obviously align with the overall Art movement’s aims at one point. You may also discuss technique, materials, subject matter and how their work changed during their lifetime. Include plenty examples of their work. Don’t forget titles and dates. Three transcriptions*: Draw three different pieces by one or three different artists from your Art Movement. Try to use a different technique for each one. Make sure these are at least A4. Each transcription must be accompanied with the artist’s name, the title and date it was created. You should choose pieces that are clearly connected to your movement. * A transcription is a careful copy. Stories (Make sure you include images): Behind the work. Pieces of work- even abstract pieces- quite often have a story behind them. Artists frequently present a narrative, chronicles of their time or respond to a personal, social or political event. Present a piece of work and explain the story behind it. There may be symbols or metaphors that need explaining. OR Behind the Artist. Is there a particular life event of one of the artists connected to your Art Movement that you feel is important to know in order to understand their work? START HERE. COMPULSARY OVERVIEW OF YOUR ART MOVEMENT 1.Present a timeline of your ART MOVEMENT. This must include (at the very least) key dates, places and main players in the movement. Highlight the most significant points. 2.What was the catalyst for the MOVEMENT beginning? 3.Outline the intentions of your MOVEMENT. ie. What were the aims of the artists involved? Did they have a written manifesto? Culture: Photography, Music & Film What was happening in Music and Film during the time of your Art Movement? Are there any parallels between Art, Music and / or Film? There were movements within Music and cinema too. Can you find any overlap? Did your Art Movement also use other media such as Photography, Music and Film to present their ideas and aims? Present two pieces. Response: Create a piece of work that takes inspiration from your chosen Art Movement. This must not be a copy. Use the techniques you have learnt during lessons if these are relevant to your chosen movement. For example: • A cubist still life or portrait- 2D or 3D; • A self-portrait in the style of Andy Warhol (Pop Art); • A painting in response to Music (Abstract Expressionism); • Sculpture using found objects (Dada). Cultural, Social & Political Influences: There were many, significant events throughout the period called Modernism. • Was your Movement a direct response to a particular event within Art or the wider world? • Did any individual artist connected to your movement react to a particular event? • Did an event end your Art Movement? Include images to support your answers. Interview an artist Create an imagined interview with an artist. Your questions should ask them about their life but most importantly about their work. For example: What themes does your work address? Why do you use this particular media? You should also ask them about their role within the Art Movement they are part of. Structure your work so that you write the question followed by the answer given by your artist. Include images to support your answers.
