3/3/2016 Modern Art History Paper writing guidelines  Go see a work of art at a local museum. st  1 part has to do with your own observation.  Make notes of anything that comes to mind when you see the piece.  How do you feel about the piece?  Record your thoughts on paper.  Detailed background of the work.  What is this work doing?  What is this work meant to be? nd  2 part has to do with the class curriculum and how it applies.  Chicago Style Abstract Art from a Different Angle… Comparison between two different artists who invented new art work which can be seen as reactions to industrial mechanical society. Vladimir Tatlin 1885-1953 Marcel Duchamp 1887-1968 Textbook chapter 1914 Art made thru non-human technique goes back to Tatlin and Duchamp. Still much desire for art made by hand but the thought at the time was the way of the future was more mechanical and making art by hand would die off.  There is some truth to mechanical art now versus handmade crafts.  Not wrong to suggest that mechanical art is the way of the future but cannot totally say handmade artwork is dying off. Tatlin One of many Russian constructivist.  Peaked during Russian Revolution  Russian Revolution gave them opportunity to have a broader impact.  1917 Russian Revolution o CZarist Empire Communist Rule o Russia for centuries had been very isolated from Europe. o For centuries Russian art and Russian culture had been in traditional form. Much less economically advanced than the rest. o Very traditional and very little to do with experimental art like that of France and Europe. o Many Russians believed this new Revolution would help and they hoped it would be good for ordinary people.  Art Constructivism became a great form of influence during the time of the Russian Revolution. Constructivism  Replace art with something that would better serve society.  Construction  Engineering  Design 1. Constructivist looked at the establishment of Russia and saw the Czar’s and their wealth and then looked at the poor and they were convinced they needed to get rid of old culture and begin a new culture. 2. They came up with construction something that sounds a lot more like engineering, they believed the subjective point of view was an obstacle. 3. True constructivist artists would put all the subjective feelings aside and do something to help build this new society. Vladimir Tatlin Selection of Materials: Iron, Stucco, Glass, Asphalt 1914  Role of a constructer is to show the inherent nature of the materials Vladimir Tatlin Corner Relief Iron, Aluminum, primer (destroyed) 1915  Something to express the material nature of things.
