North American Indigenous Collection And Curation And Its Impact On Market Arts., Adelaide Mccomb
Electronic Theses and Dissertations
This thesis examines the history of two North American Indigenous groups, those belonging to the Great Plains and the Arctic, and observes how settler-colonial influence determined the collection and curation of arts and artifacts in these areas. This art includes a mention of pre-Colombian works, but focuses predominantly on works being made after “first-contact” through the contemporary ear. The paper addresses the effect imperialist history has had on the development of Indigenous art markets, and how institutions such as museums may address them through ethical practices, and efforts to decolonize museum spaces.

Just A Coincidence? Whether Intention In Artistic Expression Alters Significance: An Analysis And Comparison Of Herman Melville's Moby-Dick And Matt Kish's Moby-Dick In Pictures: One Drawing For Every Page, 2018 University of Washington Tacoma
Just A Coincidence? Whether Intention In Artistic Expression Alters Significance: An Analysis And Comparison Of Herman Melville's Moby-Dick And Matt Kish's Moby-Dick In Pictures: One Drawing For Every Page, Brittany Barnhouse
Access*: Interdisciplinary Journal of Student Research and Scholarship
Using examples from Melville's Moby-Dick and Matt Kish's Moby-Dick in Pictures: One Drawing for Every Page, this paper explores how intention and coincidence contribute to perception of literature and art. There are too many patterns and details for certain aspects of Moby-Dick to be just a coincidence, and when the novel is viewed with this in mind, it changes the reader's relationship with the text and subsequently inspired artwork. By questioning the relationship with coincidence and intention as it relates to truth in storytelling and art, the reader by extension begins to question the very same in ...

To Save A Soul? Analyzing Hieronymus Bosch’S Death And The Miser, 2018 Gettysburg College
To Save A Soul? Analyzing Hieronymus Bosch’S Death And The Miser, Ryan Bilger
The Dutch painter Hieronymus Bosch remains to this day one of the most famous artists of the Northern Renaissance. His unique style and fantastical images have made him an icon beyond his years. Bosch’s painting Death and the Miser, now in the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., stands out as one of his most thematically complex paintings, packed with pertinent details and allusions to other works of his and those created by other artists. His inclusion of various demonic creatures, the figure of Death, and an angel and crucifix create a tense atmosphere surrounding the passing ...
Sub Lege To Sub Gratia: An Iconographic Study Of Van Eyck’S Annunciation, 2018 Gettysburg College
Sub Lege To Sub Gratia: An Iconographic Study Of Van Eyck’S Annunciation, Christopher J. Condon
When the Archangel Gabriel descended from heaven to inform the Virgin Mary of her status as God’s chosen vehicle for the birth of Jesus Christ, she was immediately filled with a sense of apprehension. Gabriel’s words, “...invenisti enim gratiam apud Deum [you have found favor with God],” reassured the Virgin that she would face no harm, and the scene of the Annunciation (what this moment has come to be called) has forever been immortalized in Christian belief as a watershed moment in the New Testament. While many Byzantine icons of the Medieval period sought to depict this snapshot ...

Illusions Of "Blackness" In Contemporary Visual Culture, 2018 Lesley University College of Art and Design
Illusions Of "Blackness" In Contemporary Visual Culture, Michaël Dorn
MFA in Visual Arts Theses
My thesis begins with a primer of the historical concept of “black(ness)” and the roots of its racialization. Intertwined throughout my discussion in Section I, I will highlight a few of my research findings and discuss some of the installation images that I created as I studied the work of contemporary artists who use lexical and literal figurative “blackness” in their work—in particular, the oeuvre of Kerry James Marshall as featured in his retrospective exhibition Mastry. My discourse unfolds with a brief etymological review of both the English word “black” and its precedent conceptual forms in Section II ...

Convenient Camouflage, John Alleyne
LSU Master's Theses
Major influences in my work are most notably derived from the collages of Romare Bearden, paintings done by abstract expressionists Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko, and the multidisciplinary practice of Rashid Johnson. This list of artists has been my influence for the past academic year as a result of personal research, some of which was conducted at the Museum of Modern Art, the TATE Modern in London and Musée du Louvre in Paris. My aim in my artwork and in this thesis is to change the perception of Black people, specifically Black men and boys, and to challenge stereotypes ...

In A Distant Land, 2018 Rhode Island School of Design
In A Distant Land, Ohad Sarfaty
For the past few years I have avidly collected oral histories, family memories and imagery as a way to better understand and contextualize myself, my roots, and my own personal path. My recent paintings reference my first-hand experience as an immigrant, as well as my family's long and complicated history with displacement. The paintings were put together much like a game of telephone, their narratives transmitted through generations, stretched and skewed by family members and friends, rendering them fragmented yet crystallized. In the process of painting, seeing parallels between the past and the present has been frustrating and disturbing ...
