Earlier in the class, you researched a work of art or architecture and discussed your findings in a Research Essay. Research Powerpoint will compile the important points of your research into a presentation for your classmates.
Directions
You will lead a bullet-point discussion on style, context, content, purpose of your chosen work and offer some insight into the use of formal analysis. During your discussion, you should not only introduce the basic facts of the work but give consideration to the following:
Provenance: was the work commissioned and why? If not, why was it made? What were the artist’s intentions?
What are the interpretations of the work?
How do factors like the historical context, location, artist biography, shape the meaning of the work?
Remember that in discussing style you may refer to a period, region, or personal style.
You may also include any other methodology for discussion that you think applies or is interesting, such as a psychological analysis, a feminist response, politics, science, etc.
You may choose any application to create your presentation, but it must be in the format of a slide show and saved as a .ppt or .pptx file. Your presentation must include both images and bullet points to explain your artwork.
This is an observational project. Your observations should be illuminated by the material from class, but outside research is required and should be utilized through the Research Resource link. Research findings must be properly cited and must be properly credited in your last slide. Please use MLA format.
A typical project will spend the first 5 slides describing both the content and the form of the artwork in detail using at least 5 terms learned in class (ie. sculpture in the round, complementary colors, abstraction, etc.) and possibly providing some background about the artist (but not more than 1 slide).
You should address how the form and content are interacting (ie. Does the artist’s choice of medium enhance or detract from the narrative/subject or the message they are sending to the viewer?). The content includes the narrative or story that is conveyed in the artwork.
The rest of the project should be spent revealing new insights into the work that goes beyond the textbook. This is the essential findings of your research. In the next 5 slides, you should talk about the work’s context. You may want to talk about the work’s significance – how it may be a political statement or shows an innovative style, for example. Feel free to compare your work to other works from this time frame, by the same artist or others.
You can show historical photographs or diagram material that help to illustrate your points. Feel free to also incorporate videos into your slides.
I suggest the following organization:
(SAMPLE PRESENTATION)
Slide 1: Title slide
Slide 2: An image of your selected artwork (with artist, title, date, location)
Slide 3: Bullet points describing your artwork
Slide 4: More bullet points describing your artwork
Slide 5: Image of detail(s)of your artwork, or background of the artist
Slide 6: Bullet points describing the significance of the work
Slide 7: Image comparison artworks
Slide 8: Bullet points describing the comparison
Slide 9: More bullet points describing the comparison
Slide 10: Other images (different views of your artwork or historical images related to its context)
Slide 11: Bullet points summarizing your major ideas
Slide 12: Footnotes/Works Cited
In your bullet points, do not copy any sentences or parts of sentences from any publication or website from the museum’s label or audio guide. If you decide to include anyone else’s ideas or words, limit it to a few words and add an endnote to the final slide. (Otherwise, you are committing plagiarism.)

Complete a 10-to-15-page (3000-4500 word) paper on its design and history with a clear argument regarding how it participates in, describes, or contests structures and institutions of race. Your paper must: Work with a specific building, site, or set of artifacts – this is not the space to discuss a general cultural phenomenon, but to understand how a specific work intersects with that phenomenon. Clearly show the ways that the work intersects with questions of whiteness, race, or racialization. Have a title, a thesis, an argument, and a conclusion. Use full and proper citations following the Chicago Manual of Style – see the “Assignment Template” in the class files folder for examples of common citations. Work with the idea of how European colonizers or “invaders” took over Incan Lands and completely erased the native architecture and replaced it with the colonial architecture which is most recognized as an extension on Europe in Latin America. Explain how even though the kept the monumental architecture such as Machu Picchu and certain other ruins from the incas throughout the vernacular architecture of day to day homes where people lived were mostly erased by this new architecture implemented by the Spanish colonizers. The idea of this paper is top not only list out places but to make the argument that this erasing of vernacular Incan/ native architecture was linked to the erasing of Incan culture proving the Spanish’s racial strength over the Latin race and how that has transcended, not only in the minds of the Europeans but in the minds of latinos as well, were latinos especially in through architecture have been trying to prove themselves worthy in the eyes of European and how racism and white superiority has played a role in that mindset.

1) Begin your study process by viewing your chosen work in the museum. Spend a minimum of 3 hours to look deeply at your chosen work to get familiar with its physical aspects.
2) Research the subject matter, style, your artist’s life, his oeuvre (the works of an artist), and works of the same subject by other artists. Ask yourself such questions: what does the work represent (what is the subject matter)? How did your artist depict the picture (composition, iconography, style, etc.)?
3) Conduct comparative analysis: find another work (or other works) of the same subject by the same artist or by a different artist of the contemporary or earlier period. Ask yourself such questions: how is your chosen work different from the work(s) to be compared with? How is your artist reinterpreting a representational tradition through the work? How might the image of the type have changed over time due to the change of historical, social, or religious settings, etc.?
4) Place the artwork(s) in historical, cultural, and religious contexts.
Please attach an image (or images) of the artwork(s) discussed in the paper.
Use the Chicago Manual of Style (CMS) as your style guidance. The online resource is at http://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org/home.html.
The paper should be seven (7) pages in length, not including the bibliography and the illustrations. It should be typed, double-spaced, with a 12-point font and 1-inch margins. Number all the pages except for the cover of the paper. The cover sheet for the paper should include the following information: title of paper, your name, course title and number, course instructor, and the date paper is submitted.
