Incarnate: Presence And Vestige In Contemporary Art Practice, Michael Needham 2010 Australian Catholic University

Incarnate: Presence And Vestige In Contemporary Art Practice, Michael Needham

Theses

Incarnate: presence and vestige in contemporary art practice is a body of sculptural work presented as a series of human-scale physical vessels intended for installation in the gallery and other settings. In conjunction with a supporting visual and textual document I utilize these vessels to posit and explore a primary parallel between the Christian concept of The Incarnation and an art process traditionally conceived as creative experience made manifest. My central argument is that the soteriological idea of ‘God made flesh’ corresponds to fundamental artistic aspirations whereby abstract concepts and propositions are rendered as tangible material form. In this way ...

Into Another, Sarah N. Purnell 2010 University of Massachusetts Amherst

Into Another, Sarah N. Purnell

Masters Theses 1911 - February 2014

Through a series of paintings, drawings, videos, and large-scale sculptures/installation, I intend to create an environment that explores relationships between the safe and the unsafe place, the sweet and the grotesque, the dream and the reality, and the remembered and the forgotten. I am investigating landscape and how it relates to the body, human relationships, memory, and status of being.


The Unfixedness Of It, Kerry O'grady 2010 University of Massachusetts Amherst

The Unfixedness Of It, Kerry O'Grady

Masters Theses 1911 - February 2014

My drawings contemplate the unfixed nature of my experience. I draw from a state of uncertainty about the relationship between self and space, between a moment of experience and the one that follows it. My process involves intuitive mark-making in which instances of perception are indeterminate and discontinuous. I draw from the experience of unhinged moments, from silence and stillness, and from the indefinable, inarticulable, interstitial moments of perception between those that can be concretely described.

The immediacy of drawing, the direct engagement with the mark on the surface, is central to my work. Intuitive mark-making is a way of ...

Contributions engage, document, and/or explore the experiences of being mixed-race, by placing interraciality as the center, rather than periphery, of analysis.

Inside Out: Representations Of Women And Work On Popular Television, Liz Linden, Jen Kennedy

Liz Linden

Inside Out: Pregnant Actresses Playing Nonpregnant Characters, a video montage by artist Liz Linden, was originally exhibited in combination with the video Outside In : Fictional Commercials for Real Products at Art in General in New York in Hay 2009. Both videos use appropriated television clips to point to the formal and ideological mechanisms ~that structure our relationship to materials and content that we are confronted with on an almost daily basis, but which are often overlooked or dismissed as benign or banal. Displayed side-by-side on TV monitors, a reference to the videos' source material, together Inside Out and Outside In ...

Hoop, Kate Walker 2009 Boise State University

Hoop, Kate Walker

Kate Walker

In HooP members of the LGBT community in Nelson, New Zealand gather for a mass hula hoop event, in this work about body physicality and visual spectacle. Swaying hips, circular rhythms and shuffling feet resound. Moments of pathos, seriousness and vulnerability are punctured by the innate humour of the mass hula event. This art work confounds the stereotypes of queer communities. The usual reasons queer community might gather are to organise for political or social action, or to socialize without a sense of being 'other'. Something else is happening here. 

The history of video art as a document of community ...
