1232 Homework



sold Our first written assignment for the contemporary art course I'm taking this semester had us reading, viewing and listening. We viewed artwork and read criticism on German painter, Neo Rauch and the Brazilian painter, Beatriz Milhazes. The we listened to music from a 1960's Brazilian artistic movement called "Tropic├ília" (I had no idea that some songs I hear - and like now - were made during this time). And lastly, we looked at  the work of architect Jean Nouvel. I liked them all for different reasons, but mostly for the stories they tell through their work. For me, I think Jean Nouvel summed up a common thread that was apparent for all of them, stating that "A city's heritage is not ignored, but brought to life." still life, acrylic, 6" x 6"

  1. Hey Lisa,
    Thanks for sharing your class with us! Much appreciated. Fascinating artists. I think you've got the wrong link for Beatriz, but I googled her and her stuff is amazing.
    Cheers.

  3. Ooh, I'm scared - I clicked her name and got her images of her work - but I am so curious as to what you saw instead or maybe I do not want to know. . . I just relinked it in an effort to make it work better.
