Rose, Barbara, "Pop Art," Encounters (August 1965)

The story behind Jasper Johns's Beer Cans.
http://beachpackagingdesign.com/boxvox/painted-bronze-ale-cans


Highly motivated students: You may want to dive further into the history and multiple manifestations of “semiotics.” A good starting point is the Wikipedia article here on Roland Barthes: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roland_Barthes Reading the full text at the end of Barthes’s Mythologies (pp. 106 – 164) would also be helpful. Finally, diving a bit deeper into the sources for the individual essays in Mythologies could be the basis for a short paper or even your semester research project. For example, Barthes's essay from the anthology, "The Great Family of Man" (based on Edward Steichen's famous traveling exhibition of photographs, The Family of Man), might be examined with respect to the overall "myths" espoused by the Exhibit...and whether or not you feel Barthes's critical assessment has merit.

All: Be prepared to discuss the image below.

Week 14
(Apr. 13 – 19)
Visiting artist, Laurie Lundquist. Site specific and Public Art.
Video: Never Sorry. Ai Wei Wei. Watch in class.


note: We will watch the documentary video, Never Sorry, by American documentarian, Alison Klayman.

From 2008 to 2010, Beijing-based journalist and filmmaker Alison Klayman gained unprecedented access to internationally renowned Chinese artist and activist Ai Weiwei. Klayman documented Ai's artistic process in preparation for major museum exhibitions, his intimate exchanges with family members and his increasingly public clashes with the Chinese government. Klayman's detailed portrait of the artist provides a nuanced exploration of contemporary China and one of its most compelling public figures.
