ABSTRACT

Adaptation and Transmission in Early East Asian Funerary Arts: The Three Goguryeo Four Spirits Tombs in Ji’an, China

Heather B. Sutherland

Nancy Shatzman Steinhardt

The Donggou Four Spirits Tomb and Five Helmets Tombs 4 and 5 located in Ji’an, China are the subject of this dissertation. The tombs’ structures and the main theme of their pictorial programs, the Four Spirits (the Green Dragon, the Red Bird, the White Tiger, the Dark Warrior, and, sometimes, the Yellow Dragon), identify them as belonging to the late Goguryeo Kingdom (37 BCE-668 CE), one of the Korean Three Kingdoms. However, the ...

Ideologia E Utopias Nas Mais Recentes Constituintes Brasileira E Portuguesa: Algumas Linhas De Leitura, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha Nov 2009

Ideologia E Utopias Nas Mais Recentes Constituintes Brasileira E Portuguesa: Algumas Linhas De Leitura, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

Based upon a political compromise, in which « democratic socialists » and « social democrats » were the main protagonists, the ideology of Portuguese Constitution of 1976 was discrete, subtle. And ulterior constitutional revisions confirmed that fondamental aspect. Of course, utopia was present. But, even more present was the « hope principle ». We believe that the Brazilean constituent assembly, with the original importance of popular contributions, also had hope principle’s decisive influence. But the dinamics of the constituent assembly moderated, since the very beggining, the verbal signs of less discret ideologies. Utopia, neverthless, is very present in the aim of the « Citizen Constitution » to ...

To Document Or Not To Document, That Is The Question? Use Of The Participatory Archive Model For A Residential Artist’S Centre, Yvonne Desmond Nov 2009

To Document Or Not To Document, That Is The Question? Use Of The Participatory Archive Model For A Residential Artist’S Centre, Yvonne Desmond

Conference papers

Men of genius really are doing most when they work least, as they are thinking out ideas and perfecting the conceptions which they will subsequently carry out with their hands.’ (Leonardo da Vinci) There is a romantic notion that regards all forms of Art as emanating from the gods and artists as the mere conduits for this divine inspiration. This research project disavows such notions and instead is predicated on the basis that all artists are skilled practitioners of their craft. Research into the areas of tacit knowledge and visual intelligence indicate that the making of art is an experiential ...

Baccalaureate And Associate Degree Relationships Panel, Stephen Black, Charles Grieb, Sally A. Struthers, Sally Paronson Oct 2009

Baccalaureate And Associate Degree Relationships Panel, Stephen Black, Charles Grieb, Sally A. Struthers, Sally Paronson

Art and Art History Faculty Publications

A significant number of reasoned and documented projections indicate that two-year associate degree-granting institutions will play an increasing role in the preparation of students who continue and obtain baccalaureate degrees. The U.S. population is growing, but few new institutions are being built. Many individuals must obtain their collegiate education close to home. Economic pressures and credit-hour caps are focusing states and localities on articulation agreements and curricular continuity. This session will explore these issues as a basis for presenting and considering what administrators should know and think about as local decision-making occurs.

A Venus Of Wild Nights: The Female Nude In Paintings By Judith Linhares, Shannon Egan Oct 2009

A Venus Of Wild Nights: The Female Nude In Paintings By Judith Linhares, Shannon Egan

Art and Art History Faculty Publications

A nude woman sits on a pyramidal assemblage of logs in a pose reminiscent of Auguste Rodin’s The Thinker (1902) in Judith Linhares’s painting Up There (2003). With a delineated but transparent form, an absurdly large bumblebee feeds on enormous flowers at the base of the structure. The female figure oversees the fantastical scene like a queen bee atop a beehive. Linhares revisits the subject of a monumental female nude in her paintings (a traditional subject in the history of painting), and as such, these ‘‘queen bees’’ populate a whimsical but historical world. Her paintings are large, and ...

1815 Log House: Interpretive Manual, Timothy Mullin Oct 2009

1815 Log House: Interpretive Manual, Timothy Mullin

Library Presentations, Lectures, Research Guides

It is important to understand the different types of house museums and their purposes before we offer information about our own house museum.

There are three basic types of house museums: Documentary, Representative, Decorative. Each type has its purpose and distinct interpretive thrust.

Having very little information about the Felts family, it is impossible to present our museum as the documentary Felts House. A much more realistic interpretive goal is as a representative 1815 Log House. We have used what little bits of information we have about the Felts family, and the rest of our interpretation is taken from the ...


Making Marfa: Technical Encumbrances And Creative Resistance In Donald Judd’S Ten(?) Concrete Buildings, Rob Whitehead Oct 2009

Making Marfa: Technical Encumbrances And Creative Resistance In Donald Judd’S Ten(?) Concrete Buildings, Rob Whitehead

Architecture Conference Proceedings and Presentations

On an elevated plinth of west Texas prairie grass land, in a visually isolated corner of the Chinati Foundation grounds, sit two unfinished examples of Donald Judd’s final experiment in uniting art, architecture and nature. These imaginative and enigmatic concrete building shells have the same spare material expression, rigid proportioning system and the unnerving structural thinness that one would expect from Judd’s three-dimensional work. These buildings are part of a larger geometrically ordered complex of ten buildings designed specifically to house twelve works of art, unsurprisingly, also created by Donald Judd.
