My advice for the order of critique is the following:
Artist begins with Title and short statement
Class -describe what you see
Class - what are the physical and formal characteristics
How do these inform conceptual characteristics
Class’s understanding of the piece
Class’s feeling of the piece
Artist’s explanation (if they would like)
Class may ask questions of the artist
Finally: class may offer suggestions

Fischli & Weiss’s, Equilibres and click "works in exhibition"
Tracy Emin’s work, “My Bed” (1999) How is it related to the idea of the readymade?
How does the work of contemporary artists Sadie Barnette, Kevin Beasley, Brian Jungen, Tracy Emin, Fischli & Weiss, Sarah Lucas relate back to the notion of the readymade as exemplified in the work of Duchamp, Nevelson, and Manzoni? How are these works different from Duchamp’s readymades? How are these artists making use of found objects as materials and how does this create meaning in their works? What role do familiar objects or pre-existing objects (or documents) play in informing the audience’s interpretation? What’s your interpretation of each of these works?
Part 1) – 2 points Please write a one paragraph response to these questions above in the discussion forum for this assignment on canvas / or class website. We will share our answers in class.
Part 2) – 4 points Find / create your own “readymade” in your house. If in some way you want to alter it, combine it with something, or install it you may. Take a photograph of it to post to the canvas/blog assignment (and for us to view this object in class if you cannot “bring” it to our zoom meeting). And, perhaps most importantly, you must transform this object into a “work” by giving it a title. This title may be your greatest intervention on this object as an artist (though you may choose to alter it or photograph it in a creative way), so this title should transform the object conceptually as the audience sees it. Remember this object should be 3 dimensional, think of this as a sculpture.
contemporary artists refer back different from why create meaning?
