Research paper – How does this artwork function engage with issues of representation
Research and select an artwork from one of the selected artists listed. You will then select from one of two prompts and discuss how their work engages with, disrupts, and/or perpetuates the selected theme. Narrow your argument to focus on a specific vantage point (i.e. gender, race, etc.) when discussing what the artist is engaging with via the work.
Selected Artists: Betye Saar, Judy Chicago, Mónica Mayer, Kenyatta A.C. Hinkle, Sandra Eleta
