Art101 Assignment 8.1: Discussion on Contemporary Art Trends (Manjares)
What trends do you see in art today? Have you found art that is being produced currently that speaks to your experience? Have you found art that has engaged, informed, and changed your view?
The 21st century has witnessed the growth of many technological innovations that affect everyday life, such as the Internet and satellite systems. Satart is a new type of art that is done by a satellite. There is no brush or stroke done in this type of art. I think this is a wonderful way to capture art from all around the globe.
At first I thought that art was just as boring as when you watch a move that had no action, but know that I have done this course I have found that art is interesting and fun to know about. As you explore for the facts it is like building a puzzle every piece helps you understand and to appreciate art.
After this course I have changed the way I see art. Now I can see what the artist felt and what he was trying to express with the colors and lines. It has made me look at art in a different way like when I see a painting I like it seems to talk to me and I reflect myself in it. I have enjoyed this course as well as all of my fellow peers.
Thanks everyone I have had lots of fun!…...

The Rise of Contemporary Art in India

...The Rise of Contemporary Art in India Art in India, in all its forms, has always had a very important place in the lives of its people. Through the ages it has definitely seen and been through a myriad range of changes while still preserving its "Indian quality" to some extent. Right from the artworks found during the excavations at Indus Valley and Mohenjodaro to classical painters like Ravi Varma and then to modern painters like M.F Husain and S.H Raza, Indian art like all others has gone through evolution. Most people today are familiar with ancient Indian art which mainly includes mythological paintings, sculptures and exquisite carvings in temples and the like. In other words, the art that was being produced in pre-independant India is very different from the art that is being produced today. India was ruled by the British for a little over two hundred years. As we got closer to independence, the artwork in the region was being influenced by the presence of foreigners in the country in the sense that they had a say over what and who actually got recognition. Most of the art movements and groups that were founded during this time were heavily represented by the English. Also the art awards and honors were monopolized by them. The British authorities at the time felt that Indian crafts were to be paid more attention to than fine art. one of the main reasons for this was because they felt that Indian art was too influenced by Hindu mythology to be......

Analyse Now a Days How the Contemporary Labour Law Trend & Practices Apply.

...Analyse now a days how the contemporary Labour law trend & practices apply. The origins of labour law can be traced back to the remote past and the most varied parts of the world. While European writers often attach importance to the guilds and apprenticeship systems of the medieval world, some Asian scholars have identified labour standards as far back as the Laws of Hammurabi and rules for labour-management relations in the Laws of Manu; Latin American authors point to the Laws of the Indies promulgated by Spain in the 17th century for its New World territories. None of these can be regarded as more than anticipations, with only limited influence on subsequent developments. Labour law as it is known today is essentially the child of successive industrial from the 18th century onward. It became necessary when customary restraints and the intimacy of employment relationships in small communities ceased to provide adequate protection against the abuses incidental to new forms of mining and manufacture on a rapidly increasing scale at precisely the time when the 18th-century Enlightenment, the French Revolution, and the political forces that they set in motion were creating the elements of the modern social conscience. It developed rather slowly, chiefly in the more industrialized countries of Western Europe, during the 19th century and attained its present importance, relative maturity, and worldwide acceptance only during the 20th century. The first landmark of modern...

Midwestern Contemporary Art

...Midwestern Contemporary Art Proc 5840 P T Barnum September 25, 2013 Introduction This case begins with a couple named Peter and Catherine Smith. The Smith’s began collecting art in the late 1960’s after Catherine had an unexpected recovery from cerebral vascular spasms because it was one of Catherine’s life- long dreams. By June of 1981, the Smith’s art collection had grown so much that they were contacted by the MCA and Peter was invited to be a member of the board of trustees. In order to be a member of the board, you are asked to donate $10,000.00 to the MCA. Peter was elected to be the chairman of the board by 1989. The MCA is a foundation that specializes in contemporary art and strives to be a place where the public can directly experience the work and ideas of living artists as well as understand the historical, social and cultural context of the art of our time. They blend exhibitions, performances, collections, and educational programs for visitors. They strive to attract a broad and diverse audience in order to create a sense of community through art. Peter joined the board with the intent to attract more artists and a broader audience. He planned to reach this goal by donating more money in order to build a bigger establishment for the MCA. Keith Schmidt was then hired as the MCA’s executive director at the beginning of 1989, at the same time Peter was elected as chairman of the board. Schmidt had experience as a director of the Southern Museum of art......

...Midwestern Contemporary Art Case Study After reading the Case 6: Midwestern Contemporary Art in your text book, prepare your case analysis based on the following. Your analysis should be 1,500-2,000 words and follow CSU-Global APA guidelines. You should also use the CSU-Global Library to find at least one credible source (scholarly/peer-reviewed) for this assignment. You are Peggy Fischer. You want to collect the $5M pledge from Peter Smith, and previous calls have gone unanswered. Your board wants to sue, but you would like to try some tactics to pressure the Smiths instead of going through with the lawsuit. You put together the following worksheet to help you plan out your influence tactics. You can make the following assumptions in preparing this worksheet: a) you are able to reach and communicate with the Smiths, b) you are focusing on what to do now rather than what you could have done to avoid the situation, and c) if the MCA board decides to sue, it will be personally embarrassing to you, with a very public acknowledgment that you could not avoid the scandal of a lawsuit. What were the goals of an original negotiation? Was your original BATNA? What was its value? What are your interests (as opposed to your position)? What are some options for mutual gain? Identify influence tactics: which ones could you use on the Smiths? What power bases do you (as Peggy Fischer) have in regards to each of the Smiths? Explain. How might you (again as Peggy Fischer)...

Contemporary Art History

...emulation of painting was notably the first style of photography, mainly due to the fact that photography had not yet been experienced. Photographers tried to reproduce the ideals that existed in their current popular art forms in the hopes that it would become more popular and begin to be recognized as a form of artwork. As photography became more well known a select few photographers began to use it as a way to document current events around the world. This new found ability to capture a moment quickly and realistically, compared to sketches and paintings, allowed for common people to accurately view what was happening around them. These photographs allowed for the masses to view events in distant places around the world that many would not have otherwise been able to experience. Photography became widely experienced and more and more people began to view it as an art form in and of itself. As the optical and chemical processes in photography began to develop, it allowed for faster and more accurate photographs which created. A broader range of possibilities for the captured images emerged. These modern photography concepts allowed for photographers to portray ideas, feelings, and emotions more efficiently, leading to the recognition of photography as a true art form....

Contemporary Art

...Does contemporary art focus on conceptual art is important nowadays? 28 different arts make up what is called contemporary art. Some of which are Burt art, Neo Dadaism, Pop art, Op art, Minimalism, Body art, and Conceptual art among others. These popped up in the 20th century, having as a main trait their uniqueness and authenticity from what was learn or seen in the past. I’m going to focus in Conceptual art. “Conceptual Art emerged during a period of social, political and cultural upheaval in the 1960s. It was a reaction to the perceived constraints of Modernism and the increasing commodification of the art object. Artists sought the means to think beyond the medium-specific aspects of traditional art forms, such as originality, style, expression, craft, permanence, decoration and display, attributed to painting and sculpture. They used language and text to directly disseminate ideas, demystify artistic production and negate visually. Artworks took the form of written statements, declarations, definitions and invitations.” (Moran) After reading several books, I’ve learned that conceptual art is focused in the concept than in the actual object presented to you, meaning that to understand conceptual art you need to understand what the artist is trying to express, so that what you may see may not always be the true meaning of what is trying to be conveyed. “The artist has no control over the way a viewer will perceive the work. Different people will understand the same......

Art Appreciation - Compare an Old Image to a Contemporary Image

...The painting by Gustav Klimt named Hope II in 1907-08 was very sexual but very respectful all in one. The red on her robe symbolizes women, but it is a long tradition. The robe also have circles, which symbolize the size of the embryos as the baby came to be. It represents the stages of life. The woman standing on top of the women also represent the stages of life as they go from young to old. The skull on the baby represents the final stage, death, and birth and death coming together. This also symbolizes her ancestry as her ancestors will look out for the baby. The main purpose of this painting was to show the true swollen baby as not many paintings at this time showed a pregnant woman. The contemporary image is a photograph of Kate Middleton in 2013 when she was pregnant with Prince George. As she is married to Prince William, the world found out when she visited the hospital months early after a scare from morning sickness. They were forced to tell the public that she was pregnant. As time went on, she began to show even more, so it became obvious. As the photograph has a blurry background, it can be slightly seen that she is at a public appearance to talk about something important. Photographers are more likely around her. In this photograph, Kate Middleton holds her belly to tell that she is pregnant. Even though her belly is out, she holds it to protect it. She wants to harm to come to the baby. She is wearing a maternal dress and coat to represent how far along she......

...on p. 64 in Ch. 4 of A World of Art and describe both paintings in terms of their lines. What does each artist’s use of line communicate about the artist’s personality and view of the world? Van Gogh evidently found nature to be as compelling and formidable as God himself. “The Starry Night” emphasizes this. According to Sayre, Van Gogh was mentally tormented and this is evident by the use of the artist’s technique in his painting. The lines are harsh and jagged. Those of the church spire, the trees in the forefront, and the eaves of the houses are strong and dark. The swirls in the night sky are as strong, possibly indicative of his views of God’s and nature’s power. Perhaps Van Gogh’s view of the world was simple: he knew that the world was greater than him and therefore uncontrollable. The lines in “The Starry Night” truly demonstrate his lack of control. Still, despite the heaviness of the lines and the swirls, there is a calming effect evident in the painting with Van Gogh’s inclusion of church and solitude and serenity of the small village. In contrast, Sol LeWitt’s Wall Drawing No. 681 demonstrates the work of an artist who seemingly found that the world was easily controlled. His lines are perfectly formed. The diagonal, horizontal and vertical lines perhaps indicate some disorder in the world, but disorder that can still be explained, if not contained. o View Las Meninas by Diego Velázquez on p. 155 in Ch. 8 of A World of Art and describe the formal......

A Historical Survey of Art and Its Influence on Contemporary Art

...Name: Course: Professor: Date: A Historical Survey of Art and its Influence on Contemporary Art Linear perspective involves representation of real objects in two-dimensional form through converging surface edges on multiple points that resonate well with the viewer. Contrapposto is an image of skewed human figure displacing the actual weight dispersion for an artistic effect. Foreshortening allows an artist to make an object seem closer than it is. Illusionism comprises of the ability to interpret artistic depictions as a real object. Classicism includes artwork based on ancient Greek or Roman artistic and cultural principles. Cennino Cennini, through Il Libro del l’Arte, argues a novice artist requires the best works of their precursors to enrich their artistic skill. Imitation fortifies skills through repeated reproduction of the chosen work. However, a trainee artist should focus on one piece of art to thoroughly gain the desired skill sets. Imitation eventually begets emulation through a natural inculcation of the expert's skills. Emulating the work of an accomplished artist provides a young artist with a base to develop individual skills. Masaccio (Tommaso Guidi) introduced linear perspective through The Holy Trinity on Tempera as a primary medium. Donatello sculpted Mary Magdalene on stone providing a reference that exemplified intricate detailing in art. Andrea Mantegna inspired the importance of detail to paintings through the altarpiece...

...Name of Student: Name of Professor: Course Code: Date: Contemporary Art Thesis statement An analysis of contemporary artwork reveals that there is a strong relationship between contemporary art and everyday life as artists can use them for environmental and political activities. Introduction One question that most people usually ask themselves when asked about the history of arts is whether art can have a history. Yes, art has a long history, older than most if not all individuals currently living on earth. Most people think of it as being timeless because art has remained beautiful and attractive since the Old Stone Age. Individuals enjoy looking at arts for its own sake not knowing that they may have a significant meaning and the knowledge of its context inasmuch as viewers from different generations and cultures may see same artworks and interpret them differently from the previous generations. Most of the art works we see around originate from things of the past. Rarely does an artist come up with an imaginary art from vacuum (Art History, par 1). Most of them usually refer their arts by critiquing the outmoded models, borrowing some traditional techniques and methods, researching the old and forgotten stories as well as building on some timeless themes to enable them obtain new ideas (Par 3). It is very important for us to understand the historical precedent as it guides artists in obtaining context since art began from the caves by the Old Stone Age Homo......

...them easily with indirect event like presenting them as honor guests. I think she has right position and power to reverse this resentment. After inviting them to the, they may negotiate, or get help but she didn’t choose this way. One of the ways the reach to agreement is determining who is right. In some situation rights are obvious, like the rules or laws show us directly who is right, but rights are rarely clear and situations are usually hard to standardize. To solve this dispute we can get third parties to involve this, for example; public adjudication, arbitrators. She wants to take a legal action against him but I think Fisher was not aware of other similar cases in the history much, because the exception of Philadelphia Museum of Art case was not involved such a large amount of money. Another way to resolve dispute is based on power. Common two forms of power in business are aggression, such as sabotage or physical attack and deprive the benefits for example withholding labor in strike. Whoever is more dependent has less power. Conversely whoever is more independent has more power. As we know the MCA needed some fund from his pledge to finish new building construction or not to go with bankruptcy and he has this money. Although he pledged to donate this money to MCA’s new facilities, MCA and Fisher have no right to take this money legally. This makes Smith more powerful in this case, MCA should primary consider this. “As parties bargain over the terms of an......
