Must include the picture in 250 words answer the following:
Your assignment for our last discussion is to find a piece of “non-fine” art (ie. art not typically preferred by the art market or academia), and then examine and discuss that piece the way you would a fine art piece. Make an argument for the work’s impact and relevance and, most importantly, why it should be considered art.
This assignment is a chance for you to challenge the art market and the fine art world as a whole! Everyone has an example of seeing art that is not appreciated enough; now you have the opportunity to highlight art otherwise not discussed in this kind of environment. You may choose WHATEVER TYPE OF WORK YOU WANT! The ONLY restriction is that, if it is a work that is “NSFW,” that you STATE THAT and provide a safe link for others to get an idea of the work (so, for example, if you are using, say, a work that is pornographic in nature, don’t post it –choose a tasteful screenshot as an example, or link to a synopsis that is appropriate. Basically, just don’t post pornography
- Choose a work of art that would not normally be considered “fine art”;
- Post said work or a link to it (unless it is inappropriate for the forum — use your best judgment);
- Describe the work briefly and explain why you chose it;
- Argue/explain the work’s relevance and value, as well as why it is art or is useful to examine as art.
