Visual Essays from Art History Students
Fall quarter 2020: Art History students embarked on a discovery of Japanese art.
We analyzed contemporary visual forms thriving now both inside and outside of Japan. Through our journey, we gained a new understanding of Japanese modern history, culture and aesthetics. We looked at a variety of media genres:
- Textile Arts
- Time-based art: anime and film
- Installation art
- Media/Advertising (e.g., billboards, TV)
- Time-based art: game design
To conclude our journey, we used a variety of visual formats to present our discoveries to you.
