Refer to the assigned reading from the textbook and required videos as examples of how to interpret works of art.
Select a contemporary work of art or architecture from Gardner’s Art Through the Ages: The Western Perspective, a website listed on the ART101 Museum and Images Website document located in your classroom, one of the assigned virtual reality videos, or visit your local museum.
Provide a brief analysis of the work of art using the questions art historians ask and the words art historians use. Consider the media (materials), methods, subjects of the work of art, and the reflections of the region and Contemporary Art movement.
How do the political, philosophical, religious, and social contexts impact the art of today? How does Contemporary Art differ from Baroque Art, which you studied earlier in this course?
Now that you have seen how art evolves over time and throughout history, reflect upon how your interpretation of art has changed since you examined the A Fall with the Rebel Angels in the “Post Your Introduction” discussion in Week 1. What differences are there between the ways you interpreted that work of art in Week 1 to your interpretation now? How will these changes impact the way you view art moving forward?
Your initial post must be at least 200 words in length.
