Project 3 Project Guidelines
The student will be able to:
* Apply understanding of aesthetic theories and its philosophical thought to a museumexperience.
* Reflect on new ways of interpreting and deciphering art and aesthetics.
In pairs and after visiting the exhibit “Neomexicanismos” at the Museum of Modern Art (MAM),students will select 3 artworks where they can apply the aesthetic values of an artwork and artistic thought seen in class.
The final product must be a creative vision (in terms of content, not form) thatincludes not only an analysis of artworks but also the experience in the museum, as well as a story of how art and life intermingle. The length of the paper is suggested to be one page of introductionand positioning statements, one page per artwork, finishing with one page of experiences and conclusions.
