How to Create a Successful Term Project | MyPaperHub

Research

 

Good research is key! Decide on a cultural or societal theme that will be the focus of your research. Once you have decided on this theme, select five artists who create artworks that, in your opinion, reflect this chosen theme. You should include four artists that we have learned about during the course and one that you have found through outside research.

 

 

 

Exhibition Images

Part of your research includes gathering visual aides. Build a Powerpoint Presentation using ten slides. This presentation should identify the venue for the exhibition; it can be in a gallery, an art center, a museum, or out in public space.  Also include an exhibition map that shows how the work is to be displayed. This map can be hand-drawn or computer-generated. Be creative! Then make slides for each of the artworks you want to include in your show. All images of artworks must include captions giving information about the work. Caption information includes; artist name, the title of work, medium, and the year it was made, if available. You will need to include a Works Cited page.

 

 

Writing

Create an essay that explains your exhibition proposal. Your essay should be formatted as follows:

 

Introduce the exhibition (Intro Paragraph 1)

Give your exhibition a title, then state the issue you are trying to bring to light through this selection of works. What ideas do you hope to communicate with this exhibition? Why is it relevant? Name the artists you have curated into your exhibition. You can include a story or facts on the topic to get the readers' attention; this will draw them in and create a curiosity about the works included.

 

Give background (Body Paragraph 2)

State how you went about choosing each one and be clear about the common thread that connects each artist you have selected. Discuss the impact this exhibition may have on the public.

 

Intro the 1st Artwork (Body Paragraph 3)

(a) A quote from the artist or an art critic about the work

(b) Give your interpretation of the work

(c) Point out how it mirrors your theme.

(d) Transition to the next artist.

 

Intro the 2nd Artwork (Body Paragraph 4)

(a) A quote from the artist or an art critic about the work

(b) Give your interpretation of the work

(c) Point out how it mirrors your theme.

(d) Transition to the next artist.

(d) Transition to the next artist.

 

Intro the 5th Artwork (Body Paragraph 7)

(a) A quote from the artist or an art critic about the work

(b) Give your interpretation of the work

(c) Point out how it mirrors your theme.

(d) Transition to the conclusion.

 

Conclusion

Restate the issue you are trying to bring to light through this selection of works and how they reflect the times we live in now. State why you feel that these works shown together reflect a unique cultural perspective.

 

 

 

Compose your essay as a WORD doc or Docx file labeled with your first and last name, then the assignment. Example: Jane Doe Term Project.doc

Use the Chicago Manual of Style, which includes footnotes

You will need both a bibliography and a Works Cited page at the end.

 

Note that a “works cited page,” and a “bibliography” is not the same thing. On a work cited page, you only list items you have referred to and cited in your paper, and a bibliography lists all of the material you have consulted in preparing your essay draft whether or not you have referred to and cited the work.
