Visual Arts HS Advanced MCA - Task Description: Social, Cultural, or Political Issues in Contemporary Art
Students examine and respond to a body of contemporary artworks and compare the themes of the artwork to social, cultural, or political issues in their own lives and in their local and global communities. Students choose a contemporary art making approach, plan an artwork that investigates meaning relevant to a current theme or idea, and document the art making process. After in-progress critique based on relevant criteria, students revise and complete their art work and provide an artist statement. Students curate and present an exhibition to the public.
