Survey your course textbook and reliable internet websites to locate two art objects from each of the following five cultures: China, Japan, Africa, the Americas, and Islam, that you would like to include in your exhibition. Your objects must date to the time period we are studying in this course (Prehistory -1300 CE). You will select a total of ten objects for display in your â€śExhibition of World Art.â€ť
Then, write a â€śmuseum label â€śfor each object within a Microsoft Word document. The following should be on the â€ślabel” for each object:
- A photograph of the object
- Identifying information:
- Name of the artist (if knownâ€”otherwise, attribute the culture)
- Title of the work
- Date of the work
- Medium/materials used to create the work
- Current location
- A paragraph of 4-5 sentences describing why the object is representative of its culture and is culturally significant. Briefly explain why you have selected the object for display.
Finally, in a paragraph of 8-10 sentences, write a summarizing overview of your â€śExhibition of World Art,â€ť highlighting key similarities and distinctions between the objects you have curated. Imagine that visitors to your exhibition will read this overview as they enter your â€śExhibition of World Art,â€ť and provide them with any information or context they may need to fully appreciate the objects on display.
Offer a citation of your sources for each image and the information provided as appropriate.
