The 20th century artwork experienced much transformation that leadto change of art's status quo as well as making it loose almost beyond repair. Despite the many changes, the conceptual style and "plein air" have remained and gained more momentum in the modern artwork. The artwork by Marina Abramovic is one of the art pieces that have enhanced the transformation in the contemporary art. In her work, Abramovic uses her body as a medium and subject to test her mental, physical, and emotional limits during her per

formances. Sometimes, the presentations altered the artist's ego beyond the three limits in quest for heightened transcendence, self-transformation, and consciouisness, which led to risking of her life. In effect, the major recurring themes in her artwork are death and life. The two motifs are characterized by pain and endurance, energy dialogue, intense public interaction, repetitive behavior, and long duration actions. The abs

traction or visual arts involved in this art piece include the bones, knives, crystals, tables and pentagrams.The allegory of Abramovic's art piece is highly associated with her historical background that included communist rule and harsh child life from the parents who had a complicated relationship. Essentially, the discussion of Abramovic artwork enhances understanding of the aspect of public participatory, "plein" air concept, and art and improvement of concepts, and skills in t

The contemporary artwork.

The genre of public art was established in the late 20th century. Its concept and context attracted both the experimental and traditional practitioners. In the 21st century, the aspect of public arts has expanded through creative investigations.

The Art of Public Speaking

...The Art Of Public Speaking Jemaire D. Steward New York University The Art Of Public Speaking The person who understand the importance of getting their message across in a clear, confident, and persuasive manner and are looking for ways to elevate their delivery from 'good' to 'great'. Successful Public Speaking offers specific, easy to practice strategies and tools to help you: structure your material for the best impact; cope with nervousness; maximize the effect of your presentation by using compelling visual aids; and connect with audiences of varied sizes. It also offers sound advice on how to avoid common public speaking mistakes, that even experienced speakers sometimes make, and tips on how to master the art of storytelling. The three main types of speeches are the informative, the persuasive, and the special occasion. Before deciding which best suits their purposes, however, speakers should first establish their objective in delivering the speech. Once speakers have the objective clearly established, they are then equipped to make the most suitable choice regarding what type of speech to deliver; however, before making this decision, they must have a clear understanding of the three main types of speeches. As the word “informative” implies, an informative speech “informs” those in attendance by providing them with information. Therefore, the speaker is a teacher, and his or her purpose is to educate the audience regarding a topic; and that topic may be an......

Public both student and teacher’s sense of time, is a further reason as to how color can increase the productivity in a classroom. The mental stimulation passively received by the color in a room, helps the student and teacher stay focused on the task at hand. This idea is further supported by Harry Wohlfarth’s 1983 study of four elementary schools that notes that schools that received improved lighting and color showed the largest improvements in academic performance and IQ scores. In 1983, Psychologist Howard Gardner identified seven intelligences. Among these was spatial (visual) intelligence, the tendency to learn through images. Individuals who are generally spatial learners have a propensity to think in pictures or with art-related vocabulary such as color, space and texture. B. Synthesis The research has some similarities with other existing research paper of other researcher like Kleinman, Dawyer (1999) in their book Action, and Roth (1992). They find evidences in support of visual aid and verifying the findings of previous studies conducted on visual learning. According to them existence of visual component now a days in learning and teaching is increasing combination of images, instructional manuals, and visual presentation, with text in text books, class room presentations and computer interfaces broadens. And also to Pruisner (1993) conducted a study to estimate the impact of color on learning and understanding......

...(1881-1973) 'Factory, Horta de Ebbo', 1909 (oil on canvas) Cubism was a truly revolutionary style of modern art developed by Pablo Picasso and Georges Braques. It was the first style of abstract art which evolved at the beginning of the 20th century in response to a world that was changing with unprecedented speed. Cubism was an attempt by artists to revitalise the tired traditions of Western art which they believed had run their course. The Cubists challenged conventional forms of representation, such as perspective, which had been the rule since the Renaissance. Their aim was to develop a new way of seeing which reflected the modern age. POP ART Andy Warhol – Mickey maus the early morning of July 18 in Stockholm, a major theft occurred.

...primarily as a painter. Matisse is commonly regarded, along with Picasso and Marcel Duchamp, as one of the three artists who helped to define the revolutionary developments in the plastic arts in the opening decades of the 20th century, responsible for significant developments in painting and sculpture. Although he was initially labeled a Fauve (wild beast), by the 1920s he was increasingly hailed as an upholder of the classical tradition in French painting. His mastery of the expressive language of colour and drawing, displayed in a body of work spanning over a half-century, won him recognition as a leading figure in modern art. Henri Matisse uses Fauvism as a style began around 1900 and continued beyond 1910. The movement as such lasted only a few years, 1904–1908, and had three exhibitions. (Fauvism is the style of les Fauves (French for "the wild beasts"), a loose group of early twentieth-century Modern artists whose works emphasized painterly qualities and strong color over the representational or realistic values retained by Impressionisms.

Ideas in History - Challenging Traditions with Public Art

...The essay will argue the link between indigenous art, and public art in the post-modern world within which we live. Using the site of Fiona Foley's public art sculpture Bibles and Bullets as a focal point, public art as aboriginal tradition, and public art as a postmodern concept will be analysed. Located in Redfern park, Redfern, the artist's sculpture stands on the ground of great historical context to indigenous people. The context of not only Redfern park, but also the suburb of Redfern holds significant meaning to Aboriginal Australians. In the 1920's indigenous Australians migrated from rural areas of NSW to Redfern. Since then, the Aboriginal communities of Redfern have faced numerous hardships (creative spirits 2014). Redfern Park was the site of Paul Keating's famous 'Redfern Park speech'. The site links both postmodernity and tradition in its meaning, purpose, and structure. The postmodernistic use of art as a way to disrupt movement and space challenges traditional artistic conventions. Fiona Foley is an indigenous artist who was commissioned to work on numerous public art installations. Her art does not depict traditional indigenous scenes such as the dream time, but rather has meaning deeply rooted in the modern history of the invasion of indigenous land. Foley uses public art because once in the public domain, you can't look away. Redfern, and Redfern park both hold significance relating to indigenous Australians. Redfern was the largest Aboriginal......

The Arts in Public Schools: Is It a Priority or Not?

...“Missy Thoma Professor Murphy English 131 9 October 2014 The Arts in Public Schools: Is It a Priority or Not? Everyone has taken some type of art program in school. Whether it was music, art, drama, creative writing, or visual arts. Some students may have learned something from it like any other class. The arts programs are very important to many students especially when they reach high school. They want to take that class and turn it into their career. Though some say it is not an important class and a distraction to the more important classes such as math, science, and English. The art and music programs in public schools are very important to the education for students. There is a debate that is currently suggesting that the education of art and music is linked to the “Educate America Act of 2000, which outlines the goals and standards for the nation’s education” (Flynn, 2011). According to the “Educate America Act lists arts education as a part of the core curriculum, the U.S. Department of Education (DOE) and the NEA are the federal agencies that are responsible for the federal funds for arts education; and to them the arts education is one of the lowest priorities” (Flynn, 2011). Many public schools offer art and music education at the levels of elementary school. It is a more local decision that is made to fund art and music education in higher school levels, which higher levels provide art and music classes that are optional to the students (Flynn, 2011).

With then use of polka dots and motifs in her paintings to make wonderful works of art. Watercolors are also a bonus when looking at an art display as it can be very vivid and in high school I enjoyed doing thing that's involved the same things that she does. Pastels and Oils were also fun to use and were some personal favorites that make art a fun thing to do that someone who may not be interested in doing will like it. In one of her paintings from her exhibit, Infinite Obsession, she uses a wide variety of colors and polka dots. There are many different things that one could decipher about this painting but it almost looks like it could be a city or galaxy. The colors that stand out the most are green, blue, and red. It features an abundance of varying sights and colors that will wow a person with it being fluid and precise as it doesn't look like someone just threw paint on a board but it looks like someone did the work intentionally with thought and reasoning behind it.

Graffiti Art and Public Space

...Daniel Dadivas BSBA II “Graffiti Art and Public Space” Good morning everyone, I’m sure almost everyone here has distinguished whether graffiti is a form of art or an act of vandalism. Some call it art others just call it against the law; no matter what you call it graffiti is a defining aspect of today's urban environment. However, have you ever looked past those opinions to see what this collaboration of spray paints is trying to express? Graffiti art is a form of communication and self-expression. On the other hand, isn’t this so called form of art defacing public property? I’m not sure if you caught the irony in my last question, but how can we deface something these considered the public? Graffiti or Urban art is a form of artwork that’s beautifying our world by using every wall as their canvas of choice. Now that I have given you a brief introduction about Graffiti, let us now look at some basic applications of how graffiti is a form of expression. Many murals in Bacolod City serve as a purpose in opening the eyes of the residents of urban culture. Many murals, tags, throw ups and pieces have the power to move society out of their comfort zone and privileged them in seeing through the eyes of the artist. Through abstract collaborations of creative motions, they can see the harsh realities and taboos that conflict, influence, damage and tear apart the lives of your fellow human beings. According to Timothy Werwath of the New York......

...As a lover of art I tend to find, beauty in everything some way. Whether it be a simple flower out in a field of brown grass, or a pattern that everyone thinks looks too busy. I didn’t realize how the ‘Beauty is all around you’ quote would fit me until I actually started to study it. No, I’m not art major because I can’t draw to save my life, but I found that studying it for a hobby is more relaxing than I thought it would have been. Living in New York City, I was able to go to an art museum every weekend. Look at the different paintings on the wall and feel a different emotion for each. If was funny how an 18x24 painting could make me feel so different about certain things. All a painting is and ever will be, and lines and different stroke one a white canvas if you break it down bit by bit. But together those line and strokes make something beautiful. When I moved from New York I thought I would have to give up that passion for a whole year. I, personally knew that I could do it but then I would be bored on my weekends, something I didn’t want to happen ever especially since I felt I was moving to the middle of nowhere. But I was mistaken when I found out that El Paso had an art museum. That was very shocking news to me, I know not everywhere has an art museum or a museum at all. Recently I was able to visit, I know it’s not good to compare two things together all the time, of course the El Paso art museum isn’t, The Metropolitan Museum of Art or the Whitney Museum of......

...INTRODUCTION In all of human history, art has mirrored life in the community, society, and the world in all its colors, lines, shapes, and forms. The same has been true in the last two centuries, with world events and global trends being reflected in the art movements. The decades from 1900 to the present have seen the human race living in an ever shrinking planet. The 20th century saw a boom in the interchange of ideas, beliefs, values, and lifestyles that continues to bring the citizens of the world closer together. Technological breakthroughs From the Industrial Revolution of the late 1800s, the world zoomed into the Electronic. Age in the mid-1900s, then into the present Cyberspace Age. In just over 100 years, humans went from hand-cranked telephones to hands-free mobile phones, from the first automobiles to inter-planetary space vehicles, from local radio broadcasting to international news coverage via satellite, from vaccinations against polio and smallpox to laser surgery. Social, political, and environmental changes There has been migration across the globe, allowing different cultures, languages, skills, and even physical characteristics of different races to intermingle like never before. The 20th century also suffered through two World Wars, and several regional wars in Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. There was the Great Depression of the 1930s, and the Asian economic crisis of the 1990s. Considered the modern-day plague, AIDS has......

...One of the most thrilling opportunities was seeing the Renaissance fair in action. The Renaissance was a cultural movement that spanned from the 14th century to the 17th. It began in Florence in the Late Middle Ages and later on spread to Europe. The term Renaissance is used loosely to refer to a historical era in which there was a development of linear perspective within the art of painting, and a increasing spread of educational reform. This cultural movement was the bridge between the modern era and the Middle Ages. It was seen as an intellectual pursuit in which social and political upheaval arose. This period is best known for its artistic developments from renowned artist such as Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci. Visiting the Faire was such a rewarding and wonderful experience because not only was I able to gain so much information about the period, I was able to learn it through having fun and enjoying myself. There were Men in tights, knights on horses, beautiful and entertaining shows, wonderful food, jousting, and very fun activities. I’d seen various movies such as Lord of the Rings and Dragonheart and ever since I was a kid I’ve always been in love with that period. The various fables of knights and tales of sword fighting always intrigued me. The fact that I was able to witness it first hand was such a fulfilling and wonderful experience! I saw the wardrobe of knights, peasants, and noblemen alike. I was able to see blacksmiths at work and gun, queens, and......

The Art

...According to the article Art, the definition of art is “the concept that any form of creativity should be valued for its own merits alone, rather than measured against some fixed set of criteria that is laid down by the art establishment.” The second article the definition of Art “expresses human imagination, not least when it engages with humanity's destiny.” An example of painting "The Mona Lisa" by Leonardo da Vinci the painting is an Image of a lady smiling because she is pregnant according to the article The Art Newspaper. This painting goes with the second definition of art because it expresses how Mona Lisa feels about being pregnant. An example of sculpture is by Auguste Rodin “The Thinker Statue” the purpose of The Thinker statue was to represent the artist as himself at the top of the door reflecting, The Thinker is a man in sober meditation battling with a powerful internal struggle. The sculpture is a man with a pose with hand to the chin, right elbow to the left knee, and crouching position. An example of Architecture is by Gregory Ain he is known for “Dunsmuir Flats, designed in 1937, brought in Neutra's influence in greater measure, but also displayed Ain's own ideas, limiting building costs while combining both privacy and exterior light.” An example of photography according to worlds famous photos is by Arthur Sasse, he took a photo of Albert Einstein is one of the most popular figures he is considered a genius because he created the Theory of Relativity...
