his paper will present two works of art as a fictional exhibition, one from history and one contemporary appropriated version. This is a way to see how art history can live in the present, and how context changes EVERYTHING. I’ve provided a list of choices to write about, from the Baroque through the Romantic period. Read about the original in your book. Learn more about the appropriated version through online research. Follow the technical and resource requirements outlined in the tabs below. Review the rubric to self-assess your work. 1. Begin by selecting a set of artworks (example: Fragonard’s The Swing & Kerry James Marshall’s Vignette 2.75) (Links to an external site.). 2. Next, read the content requirements and start gathering your information into an outline. Don’t know where to start? Check out the Resources tab. 3. When you start writing, you can refer to the technical requirements (2-3 pages plus title page and citations page). You are limited to three DIRECT quotes in the paper. Remember: Citations must be present in MLA format and any paraphrased or quoted content must be cited within the text. A tutorial on using Noodletools will be provided next week.

Take on the role of a curator as you frame the writing about them as a fictional exhibition. You’ll briefly explain what each work is about/what it was inspired by, you’ll tell us why it is important to see the works together and you’ll come up with a new wall label to inform the viewer when they visit the museum. In your paper, you will reveal new observations from a critical, creative perspective (your own!) informed by research you’ve conducted. You can arrange the content any way you see fit, as long as you cover the required information below. Required content: Come up with a theme to unite the artwork in an exhibition and title the exhibit. Explain the significance of your exhibition and why it is important for is to see these works together. Address what the appropriated version tells us about the past as well as our present (the key moment in your paper). Write a new wall label for each piece, based upon the Artnews article Your Labels Make Me Feel Stupid. Select 4 or more of the prompts from the article to guide your writing and make the art come alive! Grab our attention, tell us something new…what is essential and what is exciting? Close with your reflection on the artists’ inspiration: What inspired the original work and how did it inspire this new piece? Why should we care that another artist appropriated this work from history? Why did they do it? What will the viewer take away from your exhibition? 4 required resources (or more).
