Nick Del'Oso's selection today is not online. It is from a DVD series called Destination Art. It covers four Italian artists, and we may have time to watch the whole thing which runs at about 23 minutes.
Artists: Michelangelo Pistoletto, Roberta Silva, Maggie Cardelus and Patrick Tuttofuoco.
What are your impressions of these artists work and their creative practices? Think about the context of these artists environment & hte work they create.
*Make a blog post about these videos.
Reminder: next week Rianne & Emily will present a video of their choice
Current Assessment Tasks: Unit CULMS008B Conceive, develop & realise exhibition designs
Graduate Show Invitation & Title Design
Last week's notes contain some examples of previous invitations used in the Level 17 Artspace. I have found some other examples of invitations online that might help to get the ball rolling.
Has anyone got any other invitations that might be good for generating ideas?
Today we will do some general idea generation beginning with smaller groups to do some research & come up with ideas:
I found this item for the first year students that are doing a personal artist's manifesto for Cultural Studies: a book titled 100 Artists' Manifestos: From the Futurists to the Stuckists (Penguin Modern Classics), edited by Alex Danchev, 2011. It doesn't have many pictures, but the text is very engaging, and you can dip into it at any point. You can get an eBook version on Kindle from Amazon for only $10:
If anyone wants to have a look at it, I have it on my iPad which I will bring to class. It might be a good starting point for ideas generation for exhibition titles.
Aims: we will not make any final decisions today, our aim is to come up with a list of things that we can document and all go away and think about over the next week.
We will discuss options for getting started in class today...
Your groups have been allocated and now it's time to decide on some directions to follow.
Last week when Stefan Schutt came to speak to the group, we looked at how you might start this project.
Aims: by the end of class you should have made a plan with your group with two or three possible areas to explore.
use any remaining time to work on your blogs - upload some images of your work in progress, post links to content you have viewed, you can even post your ideas and research for the current assessment tasks.
Homework / Readings
WORK on your blogs - I want to see lots more content on the blog from everyone - especially your own work!!
DO some investigating for the Ghost Signs Project - whether it is local research, going online, whatever.
THINK about the invitation design in your spare moments.
