Your argument might focus on content or message. Idea art is often termed Conceptual. This
would be appropriate for many works from the mid 20 century on. But, of course, not all.
Guide to a conceptual analysis:
What is the message, if any? What, if anything, is happening?
How is the message made? How are the materials used to convey the message?
What do you think it means? How does this work make you feel?
What is the intent of the artist? Is knowledge of this intent necessary?
Who is the audience for this piece? What do you think was the purpose of this piece?
Question #2 What is the Art Work’s “DNA?” What works or artists may have
influenced or provided inspiration to it? Use valid information. Speculate in an
informed manner. Do not make up random stuff. All the information you need is
right there!
This is where you consider what you have learned and discovered in class and engage your
powers of observation to make connections. This is where you engage your gray matter, your
brainpower.
