For this assignment, please reference: Ch 6 on Reproduction and Sexuality and Ch 11 on Mind and Body. There are several examples in the text book, take some time to browse the book and find an example that will work for you.

This is a listing of just a few of the images from the book; Images/pages 1.4, 1.27, 3.36, 3.46, pg 141, 6.5, 6.7, 6.19, 6.28, pg 175, pg 291, pg 323-326, 11.22, 12.1, 12.9. 

Requirements & Instructions

  1. Choose 1 artwork from the entire textbook
    • Provide: Artist, title, size, location of the artwork.
    • Make sure to include the image into the body of the document.
  2. Create an alternative meaning that could be misconstrued for the artwork, when viewed out of context. Be specific in your analysis of the artwork, subject matter, etc.
    • The idea behind this is that we will often misinterpret art work (anything, really), if we don’t know the whole story (or what the artwork is about). So, make one up, based just looking at the image.
  3. Then, provide the correct context as described in your research (make sure to cite the page number or author).
    • The correct context is the information that we know, from reading the textbook- the artists intention (typically), and the meaning of why the figure is nude. 
  4. How much does context matter in interpreting an artwork’s meaning?
  5. Include all points below in your summary
    Please use the numbered format in your summary including all of the bulleted points under each number. Thank you….have fun!
