The status of women in ancient China
In an essay of 1000 words, students will critically discuss the representation of either gender, sexuality, race, or class in media displayed at a local museum. They will explore the projection of these notions in terms of the productive controversy that the artworks represent and the influence they may have on future popular culture representations. Students will include FIVE key art representations to support their discussion. A students work will be graded on their ability to apply readings and content discussed in class to critically analyze the underlying themes of the artwork selected and discuss the influence contemporary art forms have on current cultural identity, challenging cultural norms / limitations and as influences of future inclusive practices.
