Art448Multiculturalism, Identity Politics, and Post-Medium Assignment
You are to respond to the following three prompts after completing the assigned reading as listed on the Week 13 Information page (there are also links embedded in the second and third prompts). Please do not conduct additional research. You must work on your responses independently and they are to be phrased in your own words. If you quote from the assigned readings, please keep it to a minimum, and include proper citations. Plagiarized responses will not receive credit. Each response should be roughly a paragraph or two in length, single or double-spaced.1. While our focus this week is on Identity Politics, it would be remiss of us to overlook the work of well-known contemporary artists Jeff Koons and Damien Hirst. Briefly address how these artists brought together some of the strategies and aesthetics associated with both Dada and Minimalism in the creation of New Hoover Quadraflex, New Hoover Convertible, Hoover Dimension 900, New Hoover Dimension 1000, 1981-86 (Figure 26.2) and The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living, 1991 (Figure 26.6).2. Explain the significance of the 1993 Whitney Biennial (and related controversy) as addressed in the essay by Corbett and Saltz. Then select a work by two of the artists who participated in the 1993 Whitney Biennial (Links to an external site.)3. Many artists working at the turn of the twenty-first century abandoned traditional media and combined elements of numerous media in the production of their artwork. This has resulted in what is often referred to as the Post-Medium condition. Select one of the following artworks to discuss as Post-Medium. Explain the media used in the creation of the work and the subject matter explored: Christian Marclay, The Clock, 2010 (Figure 26.32) or William Kentridge, drawing from Felix in Exile, 1994 (Figure 26.43; click here
