Hello, details regarding to the content of the essay is “Final Paper Introduction” in the uploaded files. This will be the guideline.
You will need to use one or set of objects from “Object encountered during field trip” to describe and analyze how at least 2 “art world figures,” such as the artist, technician, guard, critic,curator, patron, or art historian, would approach the object(s) from distinct vantage points. With this in mind, students are invited to speculate about how the object might have been produced, what technical training was required, what was its original function (and how does the object articulate this), how the object conforms to or refutes certain aesthetic principles, how it should be exhibited, and what scholarly questions it raises. Remember to employ tools like visual analysis in defending your answer.
