Artist Assignment

Artist Research Assignment – Visualizing Social Medium Artist Writing 

Research one of the artist/writer contributors from Visualizing Social Medium Artist Writing (list of artists below). Write a paper and create a supplementary slideshow of their artwork. 

-   DUE Monday 6/8: Upload to Stetson one-drive when complete – I want these to be shareable with your peers so we can all reap the benefits of your research. 

-   Paper addresses the following:

•  Who is the artist? Where are they from/currently living?

•  What does the work look like and how is it interesting to you?

•  What is their educational background?

•  What concepts is the artist dealing with through their work?

•  How do you think the experience of seeing their work in person would differ from just viewing it in an online format?

•  What type of digital processes do they use? If none, are there any analog processes this artist employs that reminds you of the digital processes you are learning in class?

•  What materials do they use?

•  What type of analog or hand processes do they use?

•  How does their work or art practice relate to one or more of the readings for class?

•  Feeling ambitious? Reach out to your chosen artist and ask them about their art practice, how it has changed during this pandemic and thank them for making their work!

-   Page length: 2-3 pages double spaced.

-   Slideshow: 15 to 20 images with a bibliography slide at the end

-   Each slide should have ONE image labeled with

•  artist’s name

•  artwork title

•  process used

•  materials used

•  exhibition name/ current collection (if you can find this information)

•  citation of where you found the image - MLA format

-   Sources: Minimum of 5 sources.

•  At least 3 will be sourced from Stetson’s Library website.

•  Do not use Wikipedia or a Google image search as a source
