Discussion Questions:
What is the process Of creating an art movement. according to the Caroline A. Jones reading? DO you think art movements should be solely defined
by the artists within them. or by critics outside Of them? What conflicts may exist between these two groups (artists vs. critics) in terms Of defining an
art movement?
Does an art Object depend on its material composition to be defined as “art”? Or is a piece Of “art” determined by the value the artist places on the
“artwork”? Do you think a found-object artwork (like assemblage) should be understood differently than. say. a painting of arranged objects? Why or
why not’?
Richard Candida-Smith talks about now a community’s perception Of art may be different than an artist’s View Of art: “…to conVince people in their
communities that aspects Of their lives are in fact at ran against common sense and an underlying pnilosopny Of the artists themselves.” (146) DO
you think this dichotomy – community perception vs. the Assemblage art Objects and artists – complicates the way we lOOl( at these art objects?
How does the art made by African American Assemblage artists differ from that Of the white Assemblage artists we read about/discussed in L.A.’?
HOW iS it similar?
