View the image of the Hall of Bulls in your text.
Next, view the following images:
Next, watch this short video on artists: https://art21.org/watch/art-in-the-twenty-first-century/s1/barry-mcgee-margaret-kilgallen-in-place-segment/
Discuss any connection you see between the image from the text, the images above and the work of Kilgallen and McGee.
Why do these works/ types of works exist? What purpose do they serve, if any? Have you ever has the urge to “leave your mark”? (don’t worry- I won’t tell!)
Why do you think you have had that urge.. or why do other people?
Pop Art was a direct reaction to the raw, personal and exclusive emotion that was the driving force behind Abstract Expressionism.
I mean.. it has clearly had an impact right.. there are even Pop Art Makeup Tutorials on YouTube!!! (Links to an external site.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qpOxGp69shI
Sooo.. let’s learn a bit more! Watch the following trailer for the film
“Who Gets to Call it Art? (Links to an external site.)”
Artist Robert Rauschenberg, whose work is said to have bridged the two movements, is quoted as saying,
“You’ve got to have time to feel bad for yourself to be an Abstract Expressionist” (Ha!) (Links to an external site.)
Andy Warhol is quoted as saying, “Once you ‘got’ Pop, you could never see a sign again the same way again. And once you thought Pop, you could never see America the same way again”.
Watch this quick video of Andy Warhol , the first of.. both really great! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z8sptsjCk18
Consider these quotes and discuss a work of Pop Art from the 1960’s, either from the text or one that you find online that you find interesting, in terms of your thoughts on the philosophy of Pop Art.
Why was this movement so revolutionary? Do you find it revolutionary?
Does it cause you to think about visual culture differently, meaning- How did this movement change the way we view the world around us?
Embed the image of the work you are discussing in your post.
Your text discusses an image of Napoleon painted by Jacques Louis David and a similar painting by contemporary artist Kehinde Wiley (Links to an external site.) http://kehindewiley.com/. Wiley has made a practice of appropriating works from art history to address themes of social and cultural power. Here’s another example:
King Louis XIV by Rigaud
Notorious BIG by Kehinde Wiley
Check out this short video aboutKehinde Wiley. He is AMAZING!! (Links to an external site.)
Next, analyze and compare the two images above. In your answer, include the following:
1) what is your perception of the subject of these paintings?
2) what do you see going on in these painting to convey that impression?
3) how do you see the idea of propaganda being used? What is the message? Is there a connection between the subjects of these two paintings as individuals?
4) what are your thoughts regarding the re-appropriation (referencing/borrowing) of an approach or imagery to communicate contemporary social issues? Does this suggest that these issues are timeless? Does it reach a new audience? Is it simply copying?
