This web quest is about enabling connections between different art works and cultures

Criteria  Criteria A Knowledge and Understanding: Research and contextual/cultural connections.  Criteria B Application: Visual connections and presentation.  Criteria C Reflection and evaluation: Conclusions and references  Criteria D: Following instructions and time management.

Key Concepts  Culture: “The concept of culture I espouse. . . is essentially a semiotic one. Believing, with Max Weber, that man is an animal suspended in webs of significance he himself has spun, I take culture to be those webs, and the analysis of it to be therefore not an experimental science in search of law but an interpretative one in search of meaning.” Clifford Geertz

Key Concepts  Context: The facts or circumstances that surround an event or situation. Contexts that might have a social, political, religious or economic focus. IB MPY Arts Guide

Key Concepts  Pechakucha: Is a presentation style in which 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each (six minutes and 40 seconds in total). The format, which keeps presentations concise and fast-paced, powers multiple-speaker events called PechaKucha Nights (PKNs). www.pechakucha.org

Choose two artists… (They cannot be from the same context)  Nadín Ospina  Esther Mahlangu  Oswaldo Guayasamín  Cheri Samba  Rómulo Rozo  Katsuchika Hokusai  Carlos Jacanamijoy  Willie Bester  Pablo Diego José Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno María de los Remedios Cipriano de la Santísima Trinidad Ruíz y Picasso  Zhang Xiaogang

Exercise  According to the key concepts, choose two artist from the list and establish cultural or contextual connections between them (like period, social, economical or political circumstances…).  Establish at least three visual connections regarding to theirs art works (like use of color, compositions, media or techniques…).  Build up a Pechakucha: in this case, it will be 10 slides per 5 minutes, mainly with more images than text (at least 85%).
