Asking Art: Global Change




November 2, 2011

Institution Walker Art Center

When you think of global change, what artwork comes to mind? How are artists making art that investigates our comlex world and offers ways to reflect on globalism? This set illustrates a handful of responses to these questions, pairing each artwork with brief statements and discussion questions.

USE THIS SET IN THE CLASSROOM: Present this set to students while facilitating a discussion. For each artwork, the first discussion question encourages guided looking at the artwork itself and the second question addresses the artist's intent or the artwork's meanings. The text and discussion questions are recommended for high school AP students. The primary subject area is visual art, but educators may also find this set useful in teaching social studies.

USE THIS SET AS A MODEL: This set was built collaboratively. Adapt this multi-authorship activity for your learners: Participants use Art Finder to select an artwork and connect it to their personal experiences of a specific topic or occasion. Participants write statements to support their selections and share their reflections with others.

CONTEXT FOR 'Asking Art' SETS: This set is part of Asking Art, a series of resources that connect works of art to the lives we live.

COPY AND CUSTOMIZE: Feel free to customize this set by making modifications appropriate for your classroom. As a registered user of ArtsConnectEd, first duplicate this set to make a copy in your account, then edit its contents using Art Collector.
