Assignment 01 (TMA 01) Part 2 Cézanne Look carefully at Plate 1.3.5, Paul Cézanne, Bathers (c.1894-1906), and Plate 1.3.6, Palma Vecchio, Bathing Nymphs (c.1525/8), in the Illustration Book. Discuss what you think are the most significant differences between the two paintings. This essay will focus on two paintings by Paul Cézanne and Palma Vecchio which I will analyse briefly and juxtapose so as to show differences and similarities. Bathers by Paul Cézanne was established between 1894 and 1906. It is considered an impressionist painting, an art movement accompanied by the avant-garde movement which claimed 'the priority of aesthetic values over the material and the commercial' (Open University, AA100,2012, Book 1, Reputations,p.83,l.24). As opposed to that, Palma Vecchio had painted his bathing nymphs between 1525-1528 during the Renaissance which aimed to revive ancient Greek aesthetics and keep a rather traditionalist style of arts by being timeless and perpetual. Both paintings are presented from a front view, the light coming slightly from the left, which is indicated by darker outlines on the women on the right. Cézanne shows eleven women at what can be assumed a pond, hidden behind high grass. The scenery is framed by trees and the women are completely nude. In the centre of the painting is a woman lying in a posture which Cézanne has often used since

Using relevant examples, discuss how the development of video as an art form has altered the way the viewer experiences art. (30) Video art come into existence in during the 1960s. Video art is a new art form which relies on moving pictures and is comprised of video and audio data. What distinguishes this form of new media from traditional media is not the digitising of media content into bits, but the dynamic life of the "new media" content and its interactive relationship with the viewers. This dynamic life, moves, breathes and flows with pulsing excitement in real time. However, video art are varied and strived beyond entertainment, they may simply explore the boundaries of the medium or to rigorously attack the viewer’s expectations of video as shaped by conventional cinema. New and expanded opportunities opened up for video artists with the invention of Sony Portapak, a portable videotape recorder that allowed instant playback. The portability of the camera allows recording to be done in any sites not just in a recording studio, and thus opening up vast possibilities in terms of creating content and experimenting with moving images. The accessibility of video cameras encourages more people to explore this medium and the technology- savvy may
‘There is no essence of identity to be discovered; rather, cultural identity is continually being produced within the vectors of similarity and difference.’According to this statement, culture identity is changing continually in the lead of likeness and unlikeness but can it be apply to all the cultural position? I will discuss this through talking about three artists’ work with different culture roots. When I think about issues of identity, Pakistan firstly come out from my mind. I think the conflict between Muslim and Indian happen there can be a good example to talk about. I am going to discuss Huma Mulji’s works as they relate to the identity issues within her society very well. Huma Mulji was born in Karachi, Pakistan and her parents are both Indian Pakistani. In her works, she mainly focus on her discontent about The trend of Muslim Pakistani government giving pressure to the whole society to replace their South Asian identity with a Muslim identity. In one of Mulji’s animal sculptures, “The Arabian Delight”(figure 1), it is a taxidermy camel with bended body putted into a suitcase which is way too small for the camel. The camel is a symbol of Arabian or their culture and the suitcase can be related to Pakistan. This work can be understood as the metaphor of the Arabian culture is not going to fit with Pakistan. It is a strong protest by Mulji

Queensland University of Technology Creative Industries Faculty - Performance Studies KTB251 20th CENTURY PERFORMANCE RESEARCH RESPONSES WEIGHTING 10% (5 = 50%) STUDENT NAME: Jane Shields TUTOR: David Fenton MARTHA GRAHAM - an influence beyond dance? Martha Graham's impact on dance was staggering and momentous. "Her contributions transformed the art form, revitalizing and expanding dance around the world." (Newman & Newman Layfield, 1998:p99) In her search to express herself freely and honestly, she created the Martha Graham Dance Company, one of the oldest dance troupes in America. As teacher, Graham trained and inspired generations of fine dancers and choreographers. Graham's unique style of modern dance reflected the modern art of her time. The Martha Graham style is widely recognised for its trademark "contraction and release", the controlled falling to the floor, stag leaps and a developed imagery that accompanied her movements. Furthermore, there is a particular area of Graham's career that is not as well known, this being her work with actors, musicians, and in particular her collaboration with other unique artists such as Isamu Noguchi - a renowned sculptor, designer, architect, and craftsmen - Robert Wilson - a towering figure in the world of experimental theatre and an explorer in the uses of time and space onstage - and Aaron Copland - one of the
