The greatly differing art from era to era presents an issue of greater meaning. Going into perception of any individual’s reasoning of emotion from observation of something that can be judged with grace or ill regard should be considered only to those viewing the piece. The artist should actually care for his work and carry an essence of narrative to it to be considered well crafted. Although if the one taking in the piece fails to make any connection or perceives it to be something totally different does the validity of the piece to be considered good art change? It may.
On the other end of the spectrum, if the film is not a prank, then we are drawn more toward what was trying to be said through the actual storyline of the film, instead of possible motives of those involved in creating it. The ideas proposed in the storyline are things like the significance and meaning of art, how things become canonical or just popular among a mass audience, and even what it is that makes an artist a meaningful creator of art. First looking at street art altogether is in itself a controversial matter. This is because a portion of the population sees this as no art form at all, but instead it
It is clear that Dix was not accurately depicting Dr. Heinrich Stadelmann as he would appear in life. This raises the question whether Stadelmann would have approved of the finished artwork, and what it was Dix was trying to say. As with any artwork, it is impossible to know where Dix’s interpretation ends and the viewer’s subjective inventiveness begins. Therein lies the effectiveness of art as a combined experience that transcends the intent of the artist. Dix may lay the groundwork through his strategic use of artistic elements, but it is ultimately the observer that builds the
Even more problematic is the ever changing definition of what the term Culture actually means. It is extremely difficult to establish a strong theory for using culture as an analytical tool if culture's definition can not even be agreed upon. It is the lack of consensus that becomes catalyst for Kuper's decision on culture. Kuper's final conclusion is that anthropologists should strive to ultimately rise above using the word Culture. He describes Culture as, “... a matter of ideas and values, a collective cast of mind.” (227) Kuper believes things such as art, education, ceremony, traditions and other factors of societies should be studied for what they are instead of lumping them into the word culture.
The life of a Border Artist is full of difficulties, but for some is worth the struggle. Besides the challenges of making art that is appealing to the public, they must make art that is appealing to their culture and values. This struggle between values and the consumer’s demands is outlined by Gloria Andalzua in her essay, “Chicana Artists”. Stuart Ewen clearly depicts the beginning of this trend of art being integrated into people’s search for knowledge, along with reading and current events. The current trend in American culture for a horizontal knowledge base creates a greater need for types of art that were previously not in demand.
Jian Wu ESL 15/ Dr. Adams The art is all over the world, there are so many different type of art, such as painting, sculpture, and graffiti. People have different idea about the art; like different type of arts. Dorothy Allison in her essay “This Is Our World” shows how these types of art provokes. She points out about art were well made because of her stories. Allison proved the art is subjective.
Documentary Theory essay The Art of Propaganda The question as to whether there is a distinction between art and propaganda in visual discourses, and whether it is always evident is not as easy to pin point as one might imagine, as to do so first we must differentiate between the terms propaganda and advocacy. Some filmmakers such as Moore create visual texts under the premise of art while achieving a forum to highlight a personal cause that will be displayed in the pursuit of actuality and this advocacy is hidden within the spectacle. While Moore may use techniques that are available within the propagandist’s arsenal, does his intention fall into the specific description of propaganda? “Propaganda is the more or less deliberately planned
The company’s product may not be the best, it might even be the worst, but if they can plant the idea in the audience’s mind, they can persuade them to purchase a particular product. This takes a great amount of skill and thought. First, the company needs to pinpoint an audience, more professionally called pathos. Second, the company must establish an ethos, or character, to connect their values to the audience’s. Third, the company must develop overall logos, or purpose to show the audience their intentions.
There are many ways through which an individual can belong to a group or relationship, nevertheless some individuals find it difficult to establish similarities in identity with others, so must suppress their individuality in order to belong or else completely withdraw. This is exemplified through Arthur Miller’s play, The Crucible which highlights the notion that belonging is found by identification with a community and a strict ideology, which can also be drawn from the film, ‘The Beautiful Mind’, By Ron Howard. Howard displays the central character; John Nash, challenging the perception of not belonging though vigorous rules of isolation and solitude to achieve genius status, but then receives ultimate salvation from choosing and receiving his sense of belonging through love and connection. Membership of a group may require a conformity that is destructive of individuality. Miller uses the setting of the Salem Witch hunts as a contextual allegory for the McCarthy era communism paranoia.
Dezueze is more critical, and claims that she will reveal the true effect that precariousness, as brought on by these unique pieces of works, has done and ultimately will do to this specific genre of art. I am not a proponent of her idea that these pieces of art are “precarious”, however I do see them as being very reality shattering for people who may have thought art was limited to things outside of
