WAYS OF LOOKING
This series examines different ways of looking at art, distinguishing between traditional, modern and contemporary modes of locating meaning in the experience of art. What you see is what you get.When we talk about meaning in art, we often consider the subject matter of an artwork. Today, many contemporary artworks become meaningful in subjective ways. This means that rather than the subject of an artwork being contained in the art object, the viewer’s experience, perspective and unique interpretation become the subject.4 x 45 minute lectures (.mp4); 4 x artwork slideshows (.ppt/.pdf)
