Context: Beyond the Static Object
In response to our discussion on the Global Perspective Exhibit, most agreed AOA art (Africa, Oceania and Native America) lacked context. With this assignment, return to Miami’s Art Museum and their Global Perspective Exhibit and choose one African object and develop 3 different strategies to better contextualize your chosen object. With this assignment you will create a powerpoint presentation. Submissions with a Turnitin score above 7% will result in an automatic zero.
-Visit Global Perspective Exhibit once again and select one African object
-Conduct preliminary library research into chosen object to understand the object’s functions, meanings, symbolism and uses. You can also use class materials as well.
-Develop 3 different ways/strategies to better contextualize your chosen object for museum viewers (be creative with this–what would you like to see!)
-Create a powerpoint presentation of at least 5 slides, but no more than 10 slides, with your 3 ideas to better contextualize the object, better informing its use, meanings, function, aesthetic value, etc… to museum viewers.
-Format of Powerpoint: at least one slide introducing your object (with image), at least one slide for each of your 3 ideas to better contextual said object, and one slide with your bibliography or list of every source consulted.
-library research: 5 peer-reviewed sources must be used and listed in bibliography. This includes books as well as articles via library databases (most of these are peer-reviewed but not all so be careful. Hint: African Arts journal is a great peer reviewed source available here as long as you are on campus or logged in:
https://www.mitpressjournals.org/toc/afar/51/3 (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.).
Powerpoints can include, text, images, graphics, video (hint: youtube may be a good source for video), voice over, etc…
Powerpoints must be saved and uploaded as a PDF. No google docs. If your own computer does not have/support powerpoint, all library computers certainly do.
Research: with this assignment, as with all assignments and exams, Academic Integrity matters. Books, images pulled from the web, images scanned from books, and videos must be properly cited. You are to cite your sources using the Chicago Manual of Style (Author/Date) format. Refer to this link for questions and how to: http://libguides.williams.edu/citing/chicago-author-date (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.
Here are some books available in the stacks at the Art and Architecture Library (Alumni Hall). Note they are listed in Chicago Manual of Style Author/Date format):
Bassani, Ezio. 2012. African Art. Milan: Skira.
Lamp, Frederick. 2004. See the Music, Hear the Dance: Rethinking African Art at the Baltimore Museum of Art. Munich: Prestel.
Perani, Judith. 1998. The Visual Arts of Africa: Gender, Power, and Life Cycle Rituals. Upper Saddle River, NJ: Prentice Hall.
Thompson, Robert Farris. 1974. African Art in Motion. Los Angeles: University of California Press.
Visona, Monica Blackmun et al. 2008. A History of Art in Africa (second edition). Upper Saddle River, NJ: Pearson.
Visona, Monica Blackmun et al. 2001. A History of Art in Africa. New York: Harry N. Abrams.
These books may not cover most African works on display at museum. You are free to also research other books in our library’s collection, which I assure you, is extensive.
I offer some examples of citation:
If you directly quote a sentence or paraphrase an idea from a source, using the Chicago Manual of Style (Author/Date), simply place an in-text (or in-slide) citation at the end of the sentence or bullet point. It should appear as follows:
“Be sure to cite your sources” (Fenton, 2016, p. 1-2). Here is the breakdown of the in-text citation: Author’s last name, publication date, and page number.
Images and video: Generally speaking use this rule of thumb: (source: Page title and site sponsor) for the in-slide citation, and then visit the link above for your complete listing in your bibliography. Do not paste website URLs into the in-slide citations, Turnitin will go bonkers. Also avoid pasting the URL in your bibliography slide; again, Turnitin will not accept this. For your images, be sure to use “(Source: Page title and site sponsor)”. Images and video are the only cases where you will have website sources.
For this assignment, feel free to use the Internet for images and video, but for information and data, only use published, peer-reviewed books. This is of course what you will find at the library. As you can imagine, there is too much junk out there on the web regarding African art and culture.
And finally, do not think of this a presentation (even in using powerpoint), think of this as a digital poster presentation, providing as much data for myself or viewer to best understand your object and contextualization strategies.
A= This powerpoint is exceptional in every way. You have clearly thought carefully about the purpose of the exercise and clearly communicated your ideas. You include a thought provoking response and ideas reveal deep thought and analysis that demonstrates a good amount of time, thought and reflection went into this assignment. Your powerpoint is not only thoughtful and impressively well organized, but indicates a further degree of intellectual engagement with your evaluation of your chosen object than what is facilitated by class alone.
B= This powerpoint is generally good, but not spectacular. You did everything required with competence and with successful results. Your powerpoint is thoughtful and clearly-articulated, but there may be some minor issues with content and citation that prevent it from achieving an even higher grade. Overall, your work is good but does not demonstrate the highest degree of intellectual analysis.
C= This powerpoint is average. While your powerpoint accomplishes almost everything required, the material presented (content) does not demonstrate much thoughtful analysis. There may be issues regarding citation. The clarity of organization might be problematic. Or your ideas/strategies to better contextualize your selection object are not well developed or thought out.
D= This powerpoint does not meet the standards of thought, clarity, and analysis expected. Either your overall presentation is flawed, poorly thought out, incomprehensible, sloppily presented or a combination thereof. There might also be serious problems fulfilling the requirements of the assignment. Powerpoibts that do not properly engage the assignment but still demonstrate some effort will receive this grade.
F= This powerpoint is unacceptable. Either you did not meet the requirements, or did not follow instructions or did not meet the minimum standards of quality.
